1. THE LAST JUDGMENT [posthumous]

The English

The English appear a little to the right, toward the front, on a plane just above the head. The light in them seems more interior than that in others in the Christian domain, and it is by means of this light that they receive spiritual influx flowing in from above. They instantly perceive what flows in and at once accept it, and they do not let it descend as grossly into their natural self as others do. So it is that the spiritual element in their natural self also appears clear, whereas in others more dim. But they who are of such a character are those who loved rectitude and honesty, and acted uprightly and honestly, and who at the same time thought about God in accordance with religion.
