Emanuel Swedenborg

Center for Swedenborgian Studies

The Center for Swedenborgian Studies will become an affiliate of the Graduate Theological Union on July 1, 2015 after partnering with Pacific School of Religion as a House of Studies since 2001. Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) was an eighteenth-century Swedish scientist who was also an active member of Sweden’s national parliament. He underwent a dramatic mid-life spiritual crisis that resulted in a vocational change from one as a natural philosopher and government official to that of secluded biblical revelator and Christian prophet.
