We’re excited to now offer On The Conjugial Angel from the UK-based Swedenborg Society for U.S. customers in our online bookstore!
Booker Prize-winning author A S Byatt, alongside a series of readings from her novella ‘The Conjugial Angel,’ explores Swedenborg’s influence on literature, the conflict between religion and science, and more. The book is drawn from the transcript of a talk and Q&A given at the Swedenborg House in 2010 for the bicentenary of the Society.
On The Conjugial Angel is sixth in the series of Swedenborg archive pocket books. Edited by Stephen McNeilly, the aim of the series is to make available in printed form lectures, interviews, and other unique items that would otherwise remain unseen by a broader audience.
On The Conjugial Angel is available as hardcover for $8.95. If you’re a Swedenborg Foundation member, you’ll enjoy 20% off your order! If you aren’t a member, it’s not too late to join now and take advantage of this exclusive discount.
