Swedenborg's Works in the Original Latin - Scans



Swedenborg's Study Bibles



Indexes and Concordances


  • Swedenborg Concordance - The Swedenborg Concordance is a complete work of reference to the theological writings of Emanuel Swedenborg based on his original Latin writings. Compiled, edited and translated by John Faulkner Potts. This public domain book is made available by The Internet Archive.

  • Index Verborum, Nominum et Rerum in Arcanis Coelestibus (Index to the Words, Names, and Things in the Arcana Caelestia) - This work was finished in 1756, and was published in London, in 1815, by John Augustus Tulk, Esq.

  • Parallel Passages in Swedenborg's Writings - Swedenborg says very similar things in multiple places in his theological works. Swedenborgian scholars have been interested in this, and in some cases have systematically noted these "parallel passages". Freya Fitzpatrick, a Swedenborgian Latin scholar, compiled this list from several sources, and provided it to the New Christian Bible Study Project. We hope to pull the data into our main database, but... until we do that, this workbook will be a useful reference tool: The Parallel Passages Spreadsheet. If you see needed additions or edits, please send them along!

Swedenborg's Early Studies



Just for reference, here are links to some church documents that Swedenborg used as sources for his arguments that the Christian church had made serious doctrinal errors.
