Abstract: This study discusses the life and writings of Adrienne von Speyr (1902-1967) in the context of her Trinitarian approach to the spiritual life. Primarily an overview of her life and personality together with the presentation of other female mystics is explored. An introductory overview for Trinitarian spirituality with a special reference to the formation of the Trinitarian “grammar of gift” is presented electing three main female characteristics of obedience, receptivity and fruitfulness in the triune reflections of Adrienne von Speyr. The feminine approach is also discussed with the personified feminine ideal of Mary embodied with the trinitarian spirituality. These insights are intended to enrich the spiritual journey and reawaken trinitarian spirituality to the deep truth that God is Love presented as an aid for spiritual directors.
