Religion 311. Continuation of Studies in Arcana Coelestia, (W, Doctrinal)

Study of Emanuel Swedenborg’s first publication of theology for the New Church. The course provides an overview of the work’s spiritual exegesis of Genesis and Exodus-from the first mythopoeic stories of creation to the Israelites’ escape from slavery in Egypt. Special focus on the Jacob story, the Moses story, and how the narrative of Jehovah’s call to humankind contains an ancient picture of our relationship with a Human God.
