The article deals with the analysis of concept “love” in theology of St. Augustine. Theology of love of St. Augustine was influenced by many things, especially the Christian Nikean creed and personal spiritual experience. In our article we delved deeply in the united trinitology and agapelogy parts of Augustine's teaching. We described the forms of connection between the Trinity and the Christian love in Augustine's dogmatic system. We revealed the characteristic feature of Augustine's theology of love: love is not only a commandment or quality of Divine reality, but the essence of God.
