Jan Ruusbroec, a Flemish mystic of the fourteenth century, is said to have understood and articulated the mystery of the Trinity, and life in the Trinity, more than anyone else of the Western tradition (Dupr' 26). Synthesizing the Western tendency to emphasize the unity of the Trinity and our interrelations with the Trinity, with the Eastern emphasis on distinction of Persons and their relating to the order of salvation, Ruusbroec presents a trinitarian mysticism which is both balanced and dynamic.
