Description

The Swedenborg Concordance is one of the most comprehensive reference tools on the writings of the eighteenth-century Swedish philosopher and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg to ever be produced. Printed in six volumes, The Concordance contains a subject index of nearly eight thousand entries spanning across Swedenborg’s entire theological output, listing every instance where these terms occur along with concise and helpful illustrative quotations. The terms are arranged alphabetically in English with the supporting citations also given in English translation. The original Latin words of which the terms are translations are given beside the headwords of each entry.

The Concordance is a “must have” for scholars of Swedenborg, providing a much-needed shortcut for anyone researching themes and ideas across Swedenborg’s works.

The six volumes are arranged as follows:

  • Volume I, letters A-C + Introduction
  • Volume II, letters D-F
  • Volume III, letters G-J
  • Volume IV, letters K-N
  • Volume V, letters O-Sq
  • Volume VI, letters St-Z + Appendix, Latin-English Vocabulary, Errata & Corrigenda

About the Author

John Faulkner Potts (1838–1923) was a pioneering Swedenborgian scholar and clergyman who spent twenty-seven years compiling The Swedenborg Concordance, wearing out five typewriters and almost losing the use of his writing hand in the process. Potts was also a skilled translator and editor, translating the twelve volumes of Swedenborg’s magnum opus, the Arcana Coelestia, between 1905 and 1910, as well as numerous other smaller works.

Reviews

“Electronic search tools are quick and powerful for many purposes, but when one is seeking a careful and thoughtful selection of passages, the Potts Concordance remains unsurpassed”

—Stephen D. Cole, Head of the Religion and Sacred Languages Division at Bryn Athyn College

Established in 1810, the main aim of the Swedenborg Society is to translate and publish the works of Emanuel Swedenborg. The Society was incorporated in 1925 and has since become a registered educational charity. Housed in a historic building in central London, they sell not only their own books but Swedenborg-related titles from other publishers, as well as offering a reference and lending library.

The Swedenborg Foundation offers a selection of the Swedenborg Society’s most popular titles, including the Journal of the Swedenborg Society, each volume of which consists of a collection of articles about Swedenborg’s influence from some of the leading international scholars.
