Minilecture 3: Swedenborg, Pietism, Romanticism

New Video Posted

Hi everyone —

Just wanted to draw to your attention that there’s a new link under the Videotheque to another presentation from the 2010 Swedenborg Symposium at the Royal Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, which may be of interest. The presentation is by Professor Jane Williams-Hogan, and concerns the impact of Swedish Lutheranism on Swedenborg’s Marriage Love (1768). This ties in very nicely with this week’s course of readings on the background religious context for Swedenborg, and expands the scope of consideration beyond what we’ve been saying about Pietism.
