Swedenborg and his Readers - Dr. John Chadwick
Internationally renowned in the field of Philology-having deciphered (along with Michael Ventris) an ancient Mycenaean script known as Linear B-Dr Chadwick turns his attention in this collection essays to Swedenborg and the art of translation. Written over a period of twelve years, these essays offer an ideal introduction to those seeking a clearer understanding of Swedenborg's works and the historical context in which they were written. The volume begins with a study of the readers Swedenborg may have intended for his books followed by essays on the translation of The True Christian Religion, Conjugial Love and the Worlds in Space. The volume closes with a mediation on the Latin language and the problems involved in its translation.Specifications:
