The essays in this volume testify to the far-reaching effects of Emanuel Swedenborg’s works in Western culture. This book serves as a self-contained resource on Swedenborg’s life and thought and as a gateway into further exploration of the labyrinthine garden of Swedenborg’s works. It includes a biography; lively overviews of the content and history of Swedenborg’s writings on spiritual topics; and essays tracing Swedenborg’s impact in various regions of the world. Three generous bibliographies round out the volume with data on recommended texts, on Swedenborg’s own extensive life works, and on the many sources cited in this volume itself. Copious notes and a thorough index assist the reader in mining the wealth of facts, themes, and personalities discussed in this one-of-a-kind book.
