Conjugial Love (Rogers translation)

This is a translation of: De Amore Conjugiali by Emanuel Swedenborg in 1768

Translated into English by Rev. N. Bruce Rogers


This is Swedenborg's work on marriage. It shows that a true loving marriage between a husband and wife is the ideal human state. We can work towards it preparing ourselves to receive this gift. It brings eternal happiness and it corresponds to the marriage between the love and wisdom that flow from the Lord through all of creation.
