тайны неба (Secrets of the Sky, Arcana Caelestia extracts, nos. 1-442 and On the Divine Love on the Divine Wisdom)
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.
These two works, published here together, were drafts for material that would become Divine Love and Wisdom. Swedenborg addresses the philosophical question of what is man’s function and purpose, bringing in knowledge from his previous career as a scientist and student of anatomy.
