Considered by many scholars to be the most perfect Russian icon, the Holy Trinity is depicted as was revealed to the Patriarch Abraham and his wife Sarah in the form of three angels. St. Andre Rublev painted this masterpiece in the early 15th c. for the iconostasis of Holy Trinity Cathedral at the Trinity/St. Sergius Monastery in Sergei Posad, Russia. The figures of Abraham and Sarah, always in previous icons of this sacred event, are removed by St. Andrei to emphasize the transcendent revelation to Mankind of the Infinite yet ever-present One Triune Godhead. One of the chief interpretations of this icon indicates that the central angel represents God the Son, who with the angel on the right representing the Holy Spirit, turn their heads now inclined in love towards the angel on the left representing God the Father.
