Descripción

Printed for R. Hindmarsh, and sold by T. Evans, et al., London:, 1789. The New Jerusalem. "Swedenborg an influential Swedish scientist, philosopher, Christian mystic and theologian. He had a prolific career as an inventor and scientist. At the age of fifty-six he entered into a spiritual phase in which he experienced dreams and visions. This culminated in a spiritual awakening, where he claimed he was appointed by the Lord to write a heavenly doctrine to reform Christianity. He claimed that the Lord had opened his eyes, so that from then on he could freely visit heaven and hell, and talk with angels, demons, and other spirits. For the remaining 28 years of his life, he wrote and published theological works.Swedenborg explicitly rejected the common explanation of the Trinity as a Trinity of Persons, which he said was not taught in the early Christian Church. Instead he explained in his theological writings how the Divine Trinity exists in One Person, in One God, the Lord Jesus Christ. Swedenborg also rejected the doctrine of salvation through faith alone, since he considered both faith and charity necessary for salvation, not one without the other. The purpose of faith, according to Swedenborg, is to lead a person to a life according to the truths of faith, which is charity.Swedenborg's theological ideas have been hugely influential. Toward the end of Swedenborg's life, small reading groups formed in England and Sweden to study the truth they saw in his teachings. His writings influenced on some of the greatest writers and thinkers, both in his lifetime and later generations, including William Blake, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, August Strindberg, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Charles Baudelaire, Balzac, William Butler Yeats, Sheridan Le Fanu, Jorge Luis Borges, Carl Jung, Johnny Appleseed, and Helen Keller." A Swedenborgian Society still exists and a belief system known as Swedenborgianism was established based on his theories.
