You should read Invocation and Assent: The Making and Remaking of Trinitarian Theology by Jason E. Vickers, if you haven't already done so, of course. It talks about the demise and renascence of Trinitarianism in English-speaking theology. His thesis is that doctrine moved from the language-game of worship (invocation) to the language game of propositions to be believed (assent), with devastating consequences.

Part of Vickers thesis is that the Rule of Faith uses the Trinity as God's personal name, adding individual designators to distinguish the persons of the Trinity by their actions in the economy of salvation.
