In this hour-long documentary put out by the Swedenborg Foundation, we are introduced to the influential Swedish scientist, philosopher, theologian, and mystic, Emanuel Swedenborg. The documentary covers some of his life as a scientist, but focuses mostly on his spiritual life which accelerated after a “spiritual awakening” when he was in his 50s. In the documentary you’ll learn about his ideas of heaven, hell, and the afterlife, along with his practical ideas for living a good spiritual life on Earth. You’ll also learn about the ways that Swedenborg’s writings influenced many thinkers and artists including Johnny Appleseed, William Blake, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Helen Keller. It’s a succinct introduction to this complex spiritual figure of the 18th century whose influence remains with us.
