Arcana Caelestia is Swedenborg's most comprehensive biblical exegesis, containing a clause by clause account of the spiritual sense of the whole of Genesis and Exodus. Numerous passages are cited from all parts of Scripture in confirmation, and their spiritual meaning is described and discussed.

In addition to Swedenborg's biblical commentary Arcana Caelestia also contains descriptions of what Swedenborg heard and saw in the spiritual world. These form a continuous series in themselves and serve as a basis for several of his later works. These themes include Swedenborg's experiences of heaven and hell, his descriptions of inhabitants on other planets and the science of correspondences.

This 12-volume set (translated by John Elliott) is the most authoritative edition of this work currently available in English.
