Collected essays from Swedenborg’s early works. This book brings together several of Swedenborg’s posthumously published manuscript drafts: Faith in ChristThe Way to a Knowledge of the SoulFaith and Good WorksPsychological TransactionsA Hieroglyphic Key to Spiritual and Natural Arcana; and Correspondences and Representations. In these ‘pre-illumination’ works we can see some parallels with ideas developed in Swedenborg’s later theological works, notably his doctrine of correspondences. As well as the Preface by the Translator from the 1920 edition, this volume also contains a Foreword to the 1984 edition, and revised indices.
