Trinity Sunday

In the western church the sunday after Pentecost is Trinity Sunday. In the eastern church the Trinity is often represented as the so-called "Old Testament Trinity," that is, as the three angels who visited Abraham in Genesis 18. This is portrayed in the famous icon shown above, painted by Andrey Rublev in the 15th century.

Today is also Pentecost in the eastern church.
