According to Swedenborg, Christ's second coming, was precipitated by the Christian rejection of Christ and their perversion of Christ's original teachings. This second coming was accomplished, not in the flesh, but rather through an intellectual and spiritual revolution, which Swedenborg saw as being achieved through his own writings and through his revelation of the internal sense of the Bible. Swedenborg himself never established a church, but Swedenborgian societies began to appear shortly after his death, primarily in England. Swedenborgianism exerted a considerable influence on a number of important authors. Kant devoted an entire work to refuting Swedenborg (Träume des Geistersehers). Ernesti, one of the great eighteenth-century biblical critics, spent some energy specifically refuting his exegetical methods. He exerted a considerable influence, as well, on a number of important authors. His influence on the thought of Blake, who was briefly a Swedenborgian, was enormous, and his writings also intrigued Balzac, Baudelaire, Emerson, Yeats, and Strindberg.
