This best-selling and critically acclaimed biography is the first major study of Swedenborg in over 50 years. 'Swedenborg [is] the wonderful restorer of the long lost secret', writes Peter Ackroyd in his Blake. 'And what was the secret? It is the opening of the gate. It is the sure knowledge that nature and the material world are the vessels of eternity.'
Beautifully designed and illustrated throughout, Bergquist follows this theme and offers the ideal introduction to Swedenborg and the period in which he lived.
