A Brief Exposition of New Church Doctrine
This brief work, published in 1769, compares the doctrines of the Catholic and some Protestant churches in the 1700s, and contrasts them with the teachings that the new Christian church needs to have.
This is a detailed explanation of the inner meaning of John's visions, as he described them in the "Book of Revelation," or the "Apocalypse".
The Last Judgement (Continuation)
This book supplements two of Swedenborg's earlier works, "The Last Judgement" and "Heaven and Hell".
True Christian Religion
This work surveys the fundamental doctrines of the New Christian Church - about the Lord, the Ten Commandments, faith, charity, repentance, reformation, regeneration, and much more.
A Conversation with John Calvin
Swedenborg was well known for his vivid descriptions of spiritual experiences. In this manuscript, he describes a conversation he had with John Calvin in the spiritual world.
An Ecclesiastical History of the New Church
In this note, Swedenborg outlines the points he would make in a potential work on the history of the new Christian church.
This exegesis of the "Book of Revelation" was drafted from 1757-1759, but wasn't finished. (Later, in 1766, Swedenborg tackled "Revelation" again, reworking and condensing, and published "Apocalypse Revealed".)
Arcana Coelestia - Index
This is an index that Swedenborg assembled as he worked on "Arcana Coelestia".
Conversations with Angels
In these notes, Swedenborg recounts a few conversations he had with angels during some of his spiritual experiences.
Coronis (An Appendix to True Christian Religion)
In this collection of Bible passages, Swedenborg makes that case that the old Christian church was dying and that a new one, based on a fuller understanding of the Word, was being formed.
De Verbo (The Word)
This is a pre-cursor draft of "The Sacred Scripture". It outlines the way that the Divine communicates with us in the Word via its inner meaning.
This draft was a precursor to "The Divine Love and Wisdom". It describes how Divine Love operates in the physical universe, and in our lives.
Five Memorable Relations
In this draft, Swedenborg describes five scenes from his spiritual experiences. In one interesting case, he gets to feel what it's like to wake up in the afterlife.
Formulae Concordia Index
This is a brief index of the subjects in the Protestant document "The Formula Concordiae". Swedenborg made it for his own use in writing "True Christian Religion".
God the Savior
In this note, Swedenborg lists the key points that describe how God could save us by being born in human form, as Jesus Christ.
Index 1, to Angelic Wisdom Concerning Marriage
This index was for a missing rough draft of Swedenborg's main published work on marriage, "Conjugial Love".
This is a two-paragraph fragment of Swedenborg's thought on how the divine influence takes place in the natural world. It was inscribed by Swedenborg (in around 1750) on the leaflet of the copy of Swammerdam's "Naturae Bible" which he presented to Count Hopkin, and which is now in the possession of the Carolinska Institute in Stockholm.
Last Judgment (Posthumous)
This manuscript was a draft for the published work, "A Continuation concerning the Last Judgment".
Miracles and Signs
Swedenborg outlined a potential work on miracles, and how divine miracles differ from the magic practiced in ancient religions.
In this essay Swedenborg answers nine questions from Thomas Hartley, a reader in England.
Swedenborg prepared this as a concordance for use in writing "True Christian Religion".
Spiritual Experiences (Interim Diary)
This is a sub-set of "Spiritual Experiences", sometimes called "minor" because Swedenborg used a smaller-sized diary on a publishing journey to Amsterdam.
Spiritual Experiences-Word Explained
This work dates from early in Swedenborg's transition from scientist to theologian. It's interesting; this shows his initial effort to explain the internal meaning of the Word.
The Consummation of the Age
Spiritual history traces the rise and fall of "churches" - the spiritual lives and worldviews of peoples. This outline draft describes the spiritual decline of the first Christian church and the beginning of the new Christian era.
The Inner Meaning of the Prophets and Psalms
This study is a nicely organized overview/study guide for the internal sense of the books of the Prophets in the Old Testament, and all of the Psalms. Originally translated by Rev. J. E. Schreck in 1900, it was updated by NCBS editors in 2015.
The Worship and Love of God
This work is somewhat unique amongst Swedenborg's writings; it's the only one that was both published AND unfinished. It's a transitional work, between Swedenborg's scientific career and his theological one. In it, he describes the generation and formation of the soul. The work is dramatic in form, and allegorical. The first two Parts present a succession of six Scenes or Acts. Underlying the play, though, you can see Swedenborg's cutting-edge scientific understanding, in 1745.
Swedenborg's Journal of Dreams
In this journal from 1744, Swedenborg logged his dreams and then the spiritual experiences that he started having. It wasn't intended for publication. Instead, with his growing interest in human psychology, it seems to be an attempt by Swedenborg to start tracking and analyzing his own experiences as data.
The Way to a Knowledge of the Soul
The present translation of Swedenborg's treatise "De Via ad Cognitionem Animae" is by James John Garth Wilkinson, M. D., and is reprinted, with some revision, from the first edition of the Posthumous Tracts. In the second reference Dr. Tafel assigns to it the date 1738 and lists it as number 53 in the "Chronological Account." From the contents of this paper it appears that it marks the author's passage from his preliminary investigations concerning the nature of the soul to the more thorough methods which reached their first culmination in his Economy of the Animal Kingdom.
The Word Explained
The full title of this translation is "THE WORD OF THE OLD TESTAMENT EXPLAINED". Swedenborg's interests gradually shifted from the physical sciences to life sciences -- biology, anatomy, and the human body -- especially the brain. He was exploring the interaction between the soul and the body, and - more and more - felt that he needed to approach the topic from a spiritual perspective, i.e. that anatomy wasn't going to find the soul -- but that human spirituality was a deep reality that needed to be better understood. In this work, which is seen by Swedenborg scholars as being transitional, he focuses hard on trying understand and explain the Bible's inner meaning.
