Trinity - A Pagan Concept  

Belief in a Trinity (Three Gods) was popular amongst pagan sects which pre-existed Christianity.

The popularity of the 'pagan Trinity' belief amongst the Gentiles (non-Jews) led to early Christian missionaries and theologians to introduce their own version of Trinity into Christianity. This helped to increase the number of converts to Christianity, as the Trinity became a familiar concept in their new-found religion.

Below are a few of the well-known pagan Trinity-like gods that existed thousands of years before Christianity.
