Swedenborg’s Secret is an important new biography of Swedenborg that was well received by the Swedish press when originally published there in 1999. Written by the Swedish diplomat Lars Bergquist, it has been translated into English and published by the Swedenborg Society in 2005. The author relates in the acknowledgements that some of the material has been adapted for an international audience, but upon examination the changes appear to be minor. This is the second book that Bergquist has written about Swedenborg. In 1989 he published Swedenborg’s Dream Diary in Sweden. It was translated by Anders Hallengren and published by the Swedenborg Foundation in 2001.
