Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) Swedish scientist, Philosopher, and theologian. Swedenborg' exegetical works are "characterized by vivid descriptions of his experiences in the spiritual world--Swedenborg teaches the existence of spirits and angels, denies the Trinity and vicarious atonement, and describes God the invisible spaceless timeless One as manifesting himself on earth as Jesus Christ (the soul being the eternal Father, the body the son of Mary, and the Holy Spirit the action caused by the union of two). He held that man's spirit lives after death according to its earthly justification--good men gather in heaven, and the selfish seek their kind in hell. He also believed that the churches over the years had destroyed the original meaning of God's word and the Swedenborgian mission was to restore its primary sense... Swedenborg did not try to win converts, however, but confined himself to publishing his revelations. His influence has been considerable, particularly on the Romantic movement and psychical science. In 1787 his religious followers organized into a group known as the New Church, or New Jerusalem Church."--Robert G. Clouse in Douglas: New Intl. Dict. Christian Church, p.944.
