Usage examples for Tritheistic

When the Arian or Tritheistic views were proclaimed and defended, the Orthodoxy of the Church swung over towards Sabellianism, making the Unity strong and solid; and the Trinity became a thin mode or an airy abstraction.
"Orthodoxy: Its Truths And Errors"
James Freeman Clarke
