Consisting of three in one (used especially with reference to the Trinity)‘the triune Godhead’
- ‘The Holy Spirit is the third member of the triune Godhead: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.’
- ‘Conversely, when Christians read the Scriptures in a way that permits the theological inflection of the triune name to drop out of consideration or awareness, the identity of the divine persons is illuminated in a one-sided way.’

- ‘Discernment of tradition is primarily a response to God, specifically the triune God of ‘an orthodox Trinitarian theology.’’

Early 17th century: from tri- ‘three’ + Latin unus ‘one’.
