Concordance



Indices, Glossary, and Other Tools


  • Index Verborum, Nominum et Rerum in Arcanis Coelestibus (Index to the Words, Names, and Things in the Arcana Caelestia) - This index was finished in by Swedenborg in 1756, but it wasn't published until 1815, in Ldonon, by John Augustus Tulk, Esq.

  • Glossar der von Emanuel Swedenborg verwendeten Begriffe - This glossary containing the meaning of specific terms and phrases used by Emanuel Swedenborg in his theological works was originally compiled by John Stuart Bogg in 1915. Here's a link to the Glossary of Terms tool we created. You can search/sort and see excerpts and linked references as well.

  • Related Passages in Swedenborg's Writings - Swedenborgian scholars have been interested in "parallel passages" in his works. Freya Fitzpatrick, a Swedenborgian Latin scholar, compiled this list from several sources, and provided it to us. We've pulled the data into our main database, and augmented the structure to allow for other types of relationships, e.g. contrasting, or topical. Here's a link to that page: Related Passages Spreadsheet.

  • Memorable Occurrences in Swedenborg's Writings - This List of Memorable Occurrences in Swedenborg's Writings was originally complied by W. C. Henderson in 1960 but has since been updated.

Neues aus dem Projekt

A UI Upgrade! 6/26/2019:

We've been making a bunch of code changes so that we can use the latest version of Bootstrap, which one of the best sets of user interface components for the web. You'll probably notice some small changes now, and more coming down the pike, as we take advantage of the new tools.


Matchmaker, Matchmaker... 6/25/2019:

Swedenborg explains the inner meaning of more than 3000 words and phrases from the Bible. We've been trying to build a chain of data, from a word, to its explanation. Last year, we did the easiest layer, but we realized that we'd have to get more sophisticated if we wanted to go further. This year, we're tackling that. We just went through another layer, and matched 100 more concepts. We think we're on a good track. If we can make this happen, it will be a big watershed for the project.


Importing 6/22/2019:

We're in that summer surge of importing translations of Swedenborg's works, trying to get further through the pile of existing translations. So far, so good!


Latin cleanup 6/10/19:

We just linked up one of Swedenborg's Latin works, "Canones Novae Ecclesiae". It's part of our quest to get all of the original texts of Swedenborg's theological works online and linked up.


Canons of the New Church 5/21/19:

We just exported, cleaned, and added links for scripture references and cross references to Whitehead's transation of Canons of the New Church.


The Heavenly City 4/28/19:

We just got permission to use Rev. Lee Woofenden's 1993 translation of Swedenborg's work that's traditionally titled "The New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrine". This English translation, entitled "The Heavenly City", is very readable.


Search Improvements 4/20/2019:

Search just got faster. We got a chance to tackle some search optimizing, and... the results are great! It's much faster than it has been. You'll also see some related improvements, e.g. being able to bookmark searches, and make notes from inside the search UI.


Apocalipse Revelado (Portuguese) 4/11/2019:

Thanks to some careful work by one of our college student interns, we have a clean copy of Volume 1 of André Figueiredo's translation up online. We're working on corrections to the scanned text of Volume 2 now. (Many thanks, too, to the Swedenborg Library at Bryn Athyn College, for access to the printed work, and the use of its scan/OCR system!)


Last week slow – this week fast 4/5/2019:

Sorry the site was so slow for the past few days. We had three things hit our server at once, and it took us a little while to get it sorted. Part of it was just some overly-greedy indexing from third parties, and in part it was self-inflicted, in that our nice new slider features were loading the system pretty heavily. But we've throttled those indexers, and optimized our own queries, and the server's pretty happy now. So, come on down!


5 New Spanish Translations 3/23/2019:

There are some talented translators around the world, working on Spanish translations of Swedenborg's theological works. We're working with several groups to make those translations available online here, linked to the Word, and cross-referenced to each other. We just posted 5 new ones. They're by Dr. Andres Omar Ayala, a Paraguayan Bible scholar, and they're of some of Swedenborg's shorter posthumous works. Here's the master page where you can see what all Swedenborg translations we have in the system now, and filter by language.


"Bible Slider" gets Related Verses 3/16/2019:

New, from NCBS, a frog button. Huh? Well, we just added a whole bunch of data on pairs of related verses in the Bible. You'll find those links on a brand new tab on the "Bible slider". We needed an icon that expressed "jump" or "link" or "relate", and... the frog sort of jumped out at us. Many thanks to Cristoph Romhild, German pastor and Bible scholar, for putting the data together, and for giving us permission to use it.


"Swedenborg Slider" gets Parallel Passages 3/16/2019:

40 years ago, New Christian scholars worked on a project to collect "parallel passages" in Swedenborg's theological works. There are a lot of them... more than 2800 pairs. For years, we've wanted to add these to the New Christian Bible Study site, and we finally got a chance to tackle it. If you're reading one of Swedenborg's books, and you click on the "Study this Passage" button, you'll see parallel passages, to go along with the inbound references. Here's a link to a sample passage.


A Brand New "Swedenborg Slider" 3/14/2019:

We just deployed another major new feature to the site. For short, we're calling it the "Swedenborg slider". If you're reading a section from one of Swedenborg's theological works, you can slide out a panel that shows you any "inbound links", either from a cross-reference, or from any other author who links to that section. It's pretty nice! Check it out.


New "Bible Slider" features 3/11/2019:

We just posted some nice updates to our Bible slider. To see an example, go to Genesis 4 and click the "Study the Inner Meaning" button. The sliding pane has two tabs now, one with related links from Swedenborg's works, and the other with links from other commentators - including video Bible studies, illustrated explanations, some audio sermons, and more.


More Zulu and Czech! 2/19/2019:

We just posted another chunk of Zulu translation of Arcana Coelestia (the sections from Volume 2), AND the first volume of the same work in Czech, Tajemství nebe (Heger překlad). This is pretty important; Swedenborg's explorations of the Bible's inner meaning underpin all the rest of his theology; so... if you want to do Bible Study in Zulu, or Czech, or any other language, it's a good thing to have Arcana Coelestia accessible!

Plus, while we had our brains attuned to Czech, we added a translation of the first section of Pravé křesťanství (Máchová překlad), which is True Christian Religion.


AC Vol 1 in Zulu 2/1/2019:

We just imported our first Zulu translation of Swedenborg's works. Here's a link to Arcana Coelestia Volume 1 in Zulu.
