Institute for Swedenborg Studies

Welcome to the Institute for Swedenborg Studies at Bryn Athyn College. Here you will be able to enroll in our free online curriculum, learn about our Master of Arts in Religious Studies program and other academic programs, find access to resources for Swedenborg studies, get information about events, and check out our membership.

Emanuel Swedenborg’s theology, with its vision for a new Christianity, has profoundly shaped the thought of countless individuals, from William Blake to Helen Keller. We invite you to explore the impact of Swedenborg’s thought and to share your own journey of discovery.

Our recent seminar "Swedenborg’s Prism: Applications of Swedenborgian Spirituality" was held in April, 2022. Learn more about this event.
