Description

Last Thursday of every month, starting on Thursday 25 May 2017 | 6.00-8.00 pm | Gardiner Room, Swedenborg House, 20/21 Bloomsbury Way, London WC1A 2TH | FREE



The reading group for June will take place on Thursday the 29th June. We would like to apologies for any inconvenience caused by the email that was sent out yesterday.





Following on from our seminar series staged over the last year on'Swedenborg, Literature and the Imaginal'(run by Dr William Rowlandson) and on'The Anatomy of Heaven' (run by Dr David Lister), we will be holding a monthly reading group centring on Swedenborg's magnum opus Arcana Caelestia.

The Arcana can be seen as a foundation for all of Swedenborg's later visionary works, including Heaven and Hell and Divine Love and Wisdom. It contains Swedenborg's clause-by-clause elucidation of the spiritual meaning in the biblical books of Genesis and Exodus, as well as descriptions of an incredible variety of his own spiritual experiences. It exists in English as a 12-volume set (translated by John Elliott) and is available to order online or at the Swedenborg House Bookshop.

Volume one will be available for free (collection from our bookshop on 25/05/17) for those who register in advance.
