Swedenborg’s Preparation

Transaction number 5 is based on an address given by the Right Reverend Alfred Acton, M.A., D.Th., at the 200th Anniversary celebration of the publication of Arcana Caelestia at Victoria Hall in London on the 21st of June 1949.

In celebration of the publication of the Arcana Caelestia this transaction looks at the way in which the years prior to Swedenborg’s claimed experience of divine revelation prepared him for the production of his seminal text.

The Reverend Acton makes interesting observations based on Swedenborg’s writing in this essay ‘as we become older, we find in our own experience how difficult it is to change our character, although it can always be changed so long as we live on earth’ (p. 38).

Available for the extremely reasonable price of £1 from the Swedenborg Society book shop or website.  Buy all five to have the full, matching set!
