The article examines the so-called «Social model of the Trinity» and its implications for theology, religious anthropology, and ecclesiology in its social dimension. The Trinitarian approach of the Cappadocian Fathers is lifted up as a potential source of inspiration for a more complex and dynamic understanding of the Trinity in the West, urging the West to learn from and integrate critically its valuable emphases. The article is constructively critical to the Latin philosophical-theological approach to the definition of the Trinity, suggesting, however, that the commonly accepted ‘de Régnon Paradigm’ among most Western scholars does not reflect de Régnon’s original intentions and does not do justice to the natural affinity and even overlapping of ideas and emphases between the socalled ‘Latin’ and ‘Greek’ approaches to the philosophical-theological question of the Trinity.
