Emanuel Swedenborg

An 18th-century mystic, scientist, and theologian, Emanuel Swedenborg at the age of 55 directed his life toward religious and spiritual writings. A devout follower of Christ, Swedenborg turned his life from business and worldly pursuits to the revelation of spiritual truths. Neither desiring nor anticipating the formation of a new Christian denomination, he published his books for the people of the world to read and apply to their own faith journeys. He is truly one of the most interesting figures of the Enlightenment.
