This is a translation of: Apocalypsis Explicata by Emanuel Swedenborg
The original work was not published by its author.
Translated into English by John Whitehead
The "Apocalypse", or the "Book of Revelation", has been a puzzle to Christians ever since it was written. It seems hard to believe that the events described are literal ones but at the same time the stories seem to contain important messages for us. In "Apocalypse Explained" (a multi-volume effort that was never published by the author), Swedenborg works his way through the "Book of Revelation" explaining its inner meaning and drawing in many other scripture references. This work was written from 1757-1759, and was not quite finished. Later, in 1766, Swedenborg edited, condensed and reworked this material, and published it in a work entitled "Apocalypse Revealed".
