The Santa Trinita Maestà (Italian: Maestà di Santa Trinita) is a painting by the Italian medieval artist Cimabue, dating to c. 1290-1300. It is housed in the Uffizi Gallery of Florence, central Italy.

Renaissance art developed in Florence, it was replaced with a Trinity by Alesso Baldovinetti (1471), and moved into a side chapel of the same church, and, later, the monastery infirmary.

Vasari assigned it to Cimabue, and this has been confirmed by most modern scholars, although the dating remains disputed. Also the commissioning by the Vallumbrusans, of which no traces exist, has been put in discussion.[1]
