Trilogy
Trilogy Tril"o*gy, n. [Gr. trilogi`a; pref. tri- (see {Tri-}) + lo`gos speech, discourse: cf. F. trilogie.] A series of three dramas which, although each of them is in one sense complete, have a close mutual relation, and form one historical and poetical picture. Shakespeare's `` Henry VI.'' is an example. [1913 Webster]

On the Greek stage, a drama, or acted story, consisted in reality of three dramas, called together a trilogy, and performed consecutively in the course of one day. --Coleridge. [1913 Webster]
