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.
