Digital Collections


Begun in 2007, the Swedenborg Library Digital Collections bring together a selection of correspondence, photographs, manuscripts, books, journals, maps and other materials that document the history of the New Church, including the life and works of Emanuel Swedenborg.

These digital images are fully searchable and are available for private use, scholarly research and educational purposes.

The Collections

The Digital Collections consist of three collections:


Letters and documents pertaining to Emanuel Swedenborg and the first editions of his works.


A collection that covers all aspects of the study of Swedenborg and the New Church, including books, pamphlets and New Church journals.


A variety of documents, letters and photographs relevant to the New Church, Academy of the New Church and the Bryn Athyn community.
