Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and the Trinity

Translated title of the contribution: Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and the Trinity

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This article aims to clarify some unexplored aspects of Giovanni Pico della Mirandola's thought relating to the Trinity. First, it points out the road traveled by Pico, who, using Proclus, attempted to remain faithful to Aristotle, although his recourse to different 'sciences' could be interpreted as a transition. Then, it exposes the influence of anti-Jewish texts which, taking inspiration from the ineffable name of God, showed the presence of the Trinity in the divine being through a method that considered, in fact, different sciences: theology, physics, and mathematics.
