Hey everyone —
I just wanted to bring to your attention the fantastic Swedenborg Library Digital Collections hosted by Bryn Athyn College in Pennsylvania. It is full of tons (and I mean tons) of 18th and 19th century archival material, scanned and turned into easily searchable PDFs. All the major 19th century New Church periodicals are on there, among other goodies (like scanned Swedenborg original manuscripts).
So, if you are interested in “digging” deeper into a historical topic for your final paper, this is an immediate first-stop resource, especially if you are keen to follow how the Swedenborgian denomination(s) responded to various cultural pressures–like slavery and Abolitionism–and topics such as Spiritualism and communal living (Fourierism, etc).
Go hereto start playing around.
