Description

An examination of the life and thought of Swedish scientist-turned-seer Emanuel Swedenborg from award-winning producer Penny Price. Released in 2006 by the Swedenborg Foundation. Click Show More. Combining breathtaking nature photography, expert interviews, computer animation, and rare archival stills with dramatic re-enactment featuring acclaimed actor Lillian Gish, this program conveys the essential and ever-relevant insights brought back by Swedenborg from his unprecedented explorations of the spiritual worlds. Swedenborg documented the death experience as the soul departs its expired material form, awakens into the afterlife realm, and is stripped of every accretion of personality to gravitate to the level of the upper or nether regions that corresponds perfectly to its innermost nature. In addition, Swedenborg's impressive scientific achievements, his penetrating perception into the Bible's symbolic meaning, and the wide extent of his influence on thinkers, writers, and artists of many countries are explored. ________________________________________________ Share This Video: You can share this full-length documentary about Swedenborg with family, friends, and followers! 1.
