Classes & Workshops
Throughout the year, we hold regular seminar groups and salons. These have included a reading group focusing on Swedenborg’s Arcana Caelestia, a discussion group around Henry Corbin’s Swedenborg and Esoteric Islam and a summer seminar series by Dr David Lister on ‘The Cartography of the Brain’.
Neo Latin Classes with Dr Lucy Nicholas
In spring 2020, the Society will hold a ten-week introductory course of neo-Latin run by Dr Lucy Nicholas of Kings College, London. The classes are open to all but particularly useful for anyone wishing to read Swedenborg in the original Latin, or anyone with an interest in early modern history. More details are forthcoming; check our upcoming events section to learn more!
