The Practical Nature of the Doctrines and Alleged Revelations Contained in the Writings of Emmanuel Swedenborg
1838. Swedenborg was an inventor, a scientist, a civil servant, and a philosopher before he accepted God's call to be a rational revelator during the Age of Enlightenment. While Swedenborg's genius may be found in all his works, it is his claim to be a revelator, and his spiritual vision, which truly set him apart. Historically it has been this claim which has attracted interest in him; and it is his theological writings that have been the source of his greatest influence. Swedenborg stands apart from other revelators because of the means through which he received revelation, its substance, and the process of its transmission. In this essay, Clissold, a Swedenborgian, explains Swedenborg's doctrines in a letter to His Grace the Lord Archbishop of Dublin. Contents: Doctrines of Swedenborg; Alleged Revelations of Swedenborg; Internal Sense of the World of God; Intercourse with the Spiritual World; See other titles on this subject available from Kessinger Publishing.
