Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) foi um cientista sueco, engenheiro e filósofo que passou suas últimas três décadas escrevendo obras teológicas, tanto de interpretação bíblica quanto de obras mais filosóficas sobre a natureza de Deus, a humanidade, realidade e a vida após a morte.

Oferecemos suas principais obras aqui (Veja os links na coluna da esquerda). Ou, se você gostaria de pesquisar / classificar por língua, aqui está um link para ajudá-lo a fazer isso. Você vai ver traduções em inglês, português, francês, espanhol, norueguês, sueco, holandês, alemão e coreano.

Se você não encontrar uma obra particular oferecida em seu idioma preferido, certifique-se de verificar a nossa página More Swedenborg Translations onde temos recolhido um adicional de 70 traduções em uma ampla variedade de idiomas. As traduções aqui são legíveis e pesquisáveis enquanto esperam na fila para serem importadas e ligadas a características do estudo das Escrituras do site.

Para os estudiosos do latim e aqueles interessados ​​em comparar e estudar, traduções do latim original de cada trabalho também estão disponíveis em todo o site.

Swedenborg escreveu que ele foi autorizado a visitar o céu e o inferno e falar com as pessoas lá, ganhando uma visão para o plano espiritual da existência.  Ele também disse que o que ele escreveu veio diretamente do Senhor, e foi revelado a ele para que o Senhor pudesse estabelecer uma nova igreja cristã no mundo, corrigindo os erros que tinham surgido nas igrejas cristãs naquela época. Apesar destas afirmações extraordinárias, Swedenborg mesmo viveu humildemente, evitou falar em público, e se dedicou à publicação de livros, não fazendo qualquer tentativa de organizar uma igreja.

Este site está sendo criado para compartilhar essas obras teológicas e ideias extraídas delas, para que as pessoas possam ver e julgar por si mesmas a natureza da visão que Swedenborg teve.

Se você é novo em relação a Swedenborg, aqui estão alguns trabalhos que você pode considerar abordar primeiro

“O Céu e o Inferno”: Este livro oferece uma única e detalhada visão da vida após a morte, com as pessoas escolhendo o céu ou o inferno, com base nas coisas que elas mais amaram na vida.

“Arcanos Celestes (segredos celestiais)”: Esta obra de 12 volumes oferece uma análise frase por frase do significado espiritual simbólico de Gênesis e Êxodo. É uma grande tarefa, mas, se você quiser entender o Antigo Testamento, é um tesouro

“Amor Conjugal”: Este livro descreve como mentes e espíritos masculinos e femininos são projetados para interagir, criando um todo que é verdadeiramente humano. Alguns leitores modernos lutam com o argumento de que a obra foi escrita a partir de uma perspectiva masculina, mas pode-se ver através da linguagem do século 18, para abraçar uma visão do casamento eterno como a fonte de toda a alegria no céu

“Sabedoria Angélica”: Se você gosta de ciências, esta obra poderá ter um apelo definitivo. Sendo o livro mais filosófico dos Escritos, começa com a premissa de que o Senhor é o próprio amor e traça o impacto dessa ideia na realidade espiritual, na realidade física e na relação de Deus com a humanidade

“Divina Providência”: este trabalho descreve como o Senhor opera em nossas vidas, mantendo-nos em liberdade enquanto trabalha constantemente para nos atrair para o amor e o céu.

Notícias do projeto:

Divine Love and Wisdom in Korean 10/7/2019:

We just posted a nice cleanup/update to the Korean translation of Divine Love and Wisdom, courtesy of YoungHee. Here's a link to it: 하나님의 사랑과 하나님의 지혜. We now have 10 translations of Swedenborg's works online in Korean, and the Korean UI is in good shape, too, so... we've got good momentum there.


Even More Bible Highlighting: Swedish, Dutch, Czech, Norwegian, Russian 9/26/2019:

Our "matching machine" has just added 1108 new matched words in Swedish, Dutch, Czech, Norwegian, and Russian. We're highlighting those words for Bible readers. We're now wanting to find bilingual people in those languages who can review a list of "maybe matched" words, too, so... if you can help, get in touch!


More Bible Word Highlighting: Portuguese and German 9/24/2019:

We just ran our German and Portuguese Bible translations through our "matching machine" and can now reliably highlight 863 more words (in many thousands of occurrences!) in those languages. There are a bunch more words that are "maybes" -- if you speak German or Portuguese, and have time to look through a list, get in touch!.


More Izimfihlakalo Zezulu 9/22/2019:

We just added the linked-up text of Volume 4 of Dr. Z. T. Zungu's translation of Arcana Coelestia into Zulu. Many thanks to our friends in the General Church of the New Jerusalem in South Africa for their permission to use this text! If you haven't seen Zulu yet, take a look; it's a beautiful language. Here's a link.


Highlighting: Italian and Spanish Bible words 9/19/2019:

We fed our Italian and Spanish Bible translations into our new "matching machine", and added 800+ new terms with defined symbolic meanings that we're highlighting in the text. We'd welcome help from Spanish and/or Italian-speaking volunteers to help look over a list of "maybe match" words.


Four Doctrines updated in Korean 9/12/2019:

We've just deployed nice updates to the Korean translations of Swedenborg's works regarding Faith, Life, the Lord, and the Sacred Scripture, thanks to some hard work by YoungHee. Here's a "link". It makes these translations a lot more readable.


Word/Phrase Highlighting: Report 9/9/2019::

We've been working hard on a more advanced, more accurate way of highlighting words in the Bible text that have symbolic meaning at deeper levels. Readers are going to start seeing the fruits of that. We just added 1611 new English terms, and updated 627 more. Next up is French. Stay tuned! If this method works, we'll be able to do every language that has spaces between words -- so we'll have to find another way to achieve highlighting in Japanese and Chinese.


Korean UI Upgrade 9/2/2019:

Of course it's no good having Korean translations online if you can't read the website they're on. We've just deployed a big update to our Korean UI text, too, thanks to some hard work by Woon Jeong. Here's a "link". When, for each language we try to support, we can combine a good UI, a good Bible translation, good translations of Swedenborg's works, and good explanations of stories, chapters, topics, words, etc., then we're really cooking.


A Korean Translation of True Christian Religion 9/2/2019:

We just posted a Korean translation of Swedenborg's capstone theological work, True Christian Religion. Here's a link: "참된 기독교 ". Many thanks to Rev. Yang for his permission to use it, and to HyunJin and YoungHee for their hard work in editing and marking up the text. For our thousands of Korean readers, this is important progress!


A Dutch Translation of Arcana Coelestia 9/2/2019:

We just finished importing Henk Weevers' Dutch translation, "De hemelse Verborgenheden die in de Heilige Schrift of het Woord van de Heer". Many thanks to our friends in the Netherlands for their permission to use this, and for their great labor of translation. Also, special thanks to Ellie for sticking to the task of making thousands of edits to the markup. This translation goes up to section 6626, so far, out of 10083 sections, so there will be more to come... but for Dutch readers, this is already a huge milestone in being able to see into the inner meaning of the Bible.


Japanese Translation of DLW 8/20/2019:

We finished marking up and importing "神の愛と知恵", a Japanese translation of Swedenborg's, "Divine Love and Wisdom". Many thanks to our friends in Japan for helping with this.


German 8/15/2019:

Tired of Romance Languages? Want some German for a change? Here's Jüngsten Gericht - Fortsetzung (Continuation of The Last Judgment).


More Spanish! 8/14/2019:

Just translated - Exposición Breve de la Doctrina de la Nueva Iglesia, or "A Brief Exposition of New Church Doctrine".


Prophets and Psalms 8/8/2019:

In the early 1760's, Swedenborg went through the process of outlining the inner meaning of all the books of the prophets, and the psalms. He didn't publish this outline, but it squares well with his other expository works. Here's a link to it in Latin. And in English.


More Italian! 8/7/2019:

Here are translations of Swedenborg's writings about the Last Judgment, "Ultimo Giudizio" and "Ultimo Giudizio (Supplemento)".


NJHD in Japanese 8/5/2019:

We've been a little slow in getting Japanese translations of Swedenborg's works linked up and online - apologies to our Japanese readers! It's moving faster now; here's a link to 匿名の翻訳, or "The New Jerusalem and its Heavenly Doctrine".


Divine Providence in Italian 7/29/2019:

We've been on an Italian tear... and here's the latest Swedenborg translation to be linked up: "Divina Provvidenza". Hint: It's not random.


Conjugial Love in Japanese 7/28/2019:

We finished marking up and importing "結婚愛", a Japanese translation of Swedenborg's 1768 work, "Conjugial Love". Many thanks to our friends in Japan for helping with this.


Have Faith. In Italian. 7/26/2019:

And... to cap off a productive week, here's a link to "Teachings about Faith" (aka Doctrine of Faith) or, in Italian, Fede.


La Dolce Vita! 7/26/2019:

Here's a link to "Teachings about How to Live" (aka Doctrine of Life) or, in Italian, Vita. It's a nice language; even you English readers out there will enjoy trying to read it.


Progress in Chinese and Japanese 7/24/2019:

Here's a link to a first installment of Arcana Coelestia, as translated into Chinese: 天堂的奥秘. And, following the Asian theme for the day, here's a link to a new online translation of Conjugial Love, in Japanese: 結婚愛.


AE with cross-ref links 7/18/2019:

We've had John Whitehead's English translation of "Apocalypse Explained" online for quite a while, but now, at last, it's been cleaned up, and had its links checked. It has thousands of scripture references, so... if you like your explanations to be grounded in the Bible, this will keep you happy!


Apocalipse Revelado 7/18/2019:

Portuguese readers can now read the Bible side by side with Swedenborg's detailed explanation of the inner meaning of the Book of Revelation, in "Apocalipse Revelado". The translation is by J. Lopes Figueiredo. Many thanks to our friends in Brazil for their permission to use it, and to our student workers who scanned it, and corrected it, and then linked it.


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.
