Descrizione dell’editore

What is the “secret of Great Tartary"? What became of the Swedish clerk Carl Robsahm’s original manuscript of his talks with Emanuel Swedenborg? What was Strindberg’s reaction to Balzac’s novel Seraphita?

These and other provocative questions are answered by Anders Hallengren in a selection of essays. Hallengren’s research in various parts of the world brings to light records that were formerly thought to be lost. In addition, Hallengren traces routes of subtle influence that range from the experiences of Swedish soldiers captured in Russia to a chance encounter in a hotel in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, in the Virgin Islands. Hallengren argues that these influences show the profound effect of Swedenborgian thought on celebrated and ordinary people, resulting not only in profound art but in a better world.
