Jacques Derrida's (2000 ) meditation on "inside and outside" in his paper "Restitutions of the truth in pointing (Pointure)", and his reflections on "the frame" in his paper "The parergon" (1979), are brought together here in a consideration of representations of the Trinity. The conception of the three-personed god was at the centre of theological dispute in the early modern era, and the aesthetic traditions play a major part in constituting an icon that has allowed the Trinity to be a founding principle of Christian belief, despite all of its contradictions.
