Henri J. M. Nouwen, the Dutch priest, writer and academic, speaks of the community & intimacy of Rublev’s Trinity:

"Their faces, bent towards one another, disclose their humble self-effacing love for one another, while their gleaming eyes convey their enjoyment. No one is speaking but an intimate conversation is going on."

And of the activity:

"The hands of the Father, Son and Spirit reveal in different ways its significance. The Son, in the centre, points to it [sacrificial cup] with two fingers, thus indicating his mission to become the sacrificial lamb, human as well as divine, through the Incarnation. The Father, on the left, encourages the Son with a blessing gesture. And the Spirit, who holds the same staff of authority as the Father and the Son, signifies by pointing to the rectangular opening in the front of the altar that this divine sacrifice is a sacrifice for the salvation of the world"
