In the Age of Enlightenment the Old Testament came under attack by leading philosophers and deists who characterized the Hebrew scriptures as outdated, immoral, and contrary 理性. 的 work of Thomas Paine and Immanuel Kant, for instance, rejected the authority of the Old Testament and imagined a Christianity emancipated from its tyrannical 还有复仇之神. 这种“新马吉安主义”盛行于18世纪 回响在接下来的几个世纪.

会议主题: Thought from the Understanding: Swedenborg’s Library and the Shape of a Mind
地点: 宾西法尼亚州Bryn Athyn(可选远程出席)
日期: 2024年10月26日至27日

This two-day interdisciplinary conference invites scholars to explore 伊曼纽尔Swedenborg’s personal 图书馆 for points of connection between the works he held in his 图书馆 and the ideas presented in his own philosophical and theological works. 很久以前 he embarked on the spiritual journey which led to the revolutionary works of theology he published, Swedenborg was a voracious learner, and his many fields of interest are reflected in his wide-ranging 图书馆, which included works of philosophy, anatomy, history, physics, chemistry, metallurgy, engineering, and classical learning, as well 当然还有圣经和宗教思想.

的 斯威登堡研究所 is seeking papers that investigate the ways in which a text or set of texts in Swedenborg’s 图书馆 may have influenced his understanding or helped to shape the thought set forth in his theological and philosophical works. In some cases, Swedenborg may have built on ideas he encountered in other works; in other cases, he may have reacted against concepts in those texts.

Scholars may wish to make particular use of two resources made available by the Institute. 第一个是 detailed list of the great majority of the works known to have existed in Swedenborg’s 图书馆, catalogued according to Library of Congress classifications, along with links to copies of these works held in the Swedenborg图书馆, 布莱恩·阿森学院, Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania and, wherever possible, links to copies available on Google Books. 的 第二种是 index, with notes, of the authors and other figures Swedenborg references 在他神学之前的著作中. 此外,我们建议学者注意 拉尔斯·伯格奎斯特图书馆的附录 Swedenborg的秘密.
