The Swedenborg Society is a publisher, library and bookshop. We organize events: lectures, conferences, exhibitions, performances and film screenings; and we print a large selection of literature relating to the work of the philosopher, scientist, inventor, astronomer, mathematician, parliamentary figure and visionary, Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772). The Society's grade II listed premises in Bloomsbury, central London, are also available for private hire.
The Swedenborg Society will once again be participating in the Open House London weekend, providing a chance for friends of the Society, architecture buffs, and the plain old curious alike to come and view our beautiful Grade II listed headquarters in Bloomsbury. Visitors can come and admire our newly restored Neoclassical lecture hall, as well as the Wynter and Gardiner Rooms. The bookshop will be open and there will be staff and volunteers on site to answer your questions.
