In what may be one of the oldest and longest series of dreams and their analysis, Swedish scientist-turned-seer Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) describes his dream life in detail during a crucial period in his transformation into a mystic. Journal of Dreams, with its accompanying interpretation by psychologist Wilson Van Dusen, provides an intimate view of spiritual discovery.
About the Author:
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) was a Swedish scientist, nobleman, and theologian who spent his life investigating the mysteries of the soul. Born in Stockholm to a staunchly Lutheran family, he graduated from the University of Uppsala and then traveled to England, Holland, France, and Germany to study the leading scientists of the time. He gained favor with Sweden’s King Charles XII, who gave him the position of overseer of the Swedish mining industry. Later, he was given a seat on the Swedish House of Nobles by Charles XII’s successor, Queen Ulrika Eleonora. Between 1743 and 1745 he began to have visions of heaven, hell, and Jesus Christ which resulted in a stream of books about the nature of God, the afterlife, and the inner meaning of the Bible. He devoted the last decades of his life to studying Scripture and presenting his own unique theology to the world.
