...oh yes - the Trinity....

...regarding the Christian Trinity concept - as with nearly everything of the Christian religion it is both derivative and a corruption of concepts from prior (classical Greek in this case) religion....(and as usual the Christian corruption acts to specifically exclude the female aspects of divinity making such entirely male (boring, nasty & judgemental) - yet another example of Christian corruption...[of the human spirit])

Are you familiar with the concept of the Three Graces? The Three graces were : Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer)...

The Graces presided over banquets, dances, and all other pleasurable social events, and brought joy and goodwill to both gods and mortals. They were the special attendants of the divinities of love, Aphrodite and Eros, and together with companions, the Muses, they sang to the gods on Mount Olympus, and danced to beautiful music that the god Apollo made upon his lyre. In some legends Aglaia was wed to Hephaestus, the craftsman among the gods. Their marriage explains the traditional association of the Graces with the arts; like the Muses, they were believed to endow artists and poets with the ability to create beautiful works of art. The Graces were rarely treated as individuals, but always together as a kind of triple embodiment of grace and beauty. In art they are usually represented as lithe young maidens, dancing in a circle.

Got to hand it to the Greeks...at least they understood women...and art, beauty, and good fun...unlike these humourless nasty Christians - a pox upon us...
