English This study presents some salient aspects of the relationship between the Unity and Trinity of God (unitas trinitatis) in Latin scholastic theology, highlighting the decisive stages of reflection from the twelfth century to the early fourteenth century, in particular: the debate involving Roscelin, Anselm and Abelard; Gilbert of Poitiers; Peter Lombard and Joachim of Fiore; the Cathar rejection of Trinitarian monotheism; Anselm and Richard of Saint-Victor on the“necessary reasons” in Trinitarian theology; Bonaventure; Thomas Aquinas and Durand of Saint-Pourçain. Central to these debates is the way in which the relationship between faith and reason is viewed, and in particular the role of philosophy in theology.
