On Tuesday May 19, 1908, a train from Stockholm stopped in Uppsala with representatives from the Royal Academy of Science and members of the Swedenborg family. One day earlier Swedenborg’s casket had arrived on a train from Karlskrona. Now it was borne in brilliant sunshine through the flag bedecked town of Uppsala. Outside the station a large crowd of people was gathered. All of Uppsala had come out to witness the last journey of the world famous scientist and seer—titles given him by the newspaper Upsala. In the crowd, student groups were assembled under the banners of their nations. The academic ranks had come together under the leadership of the Magnificent Rector, literary historian Henrik Schück, and Uppsala’s leading government and Lutheran church officials formed one body with the Archbishop J. A. Ekman at the head.
