Splendors of the Spirit DVD
Award-winning exploration of the life of Emanuel Swedenborg
Zen scholar D.T. Suzuki called Swedenborg “the great king of the mystical world.” The originally PBS-broadcast program interweaves breathtaking nature photography, computer animation, rare archival stills and contemporary documentary footage to convey the essential insights Swedenborg brought back from unprecedented explorations of spiritual worlds, including the afterlife.
The Swedenborg Foundation presents its award-winning exploration of the life of Swedish visionary Emanuel Swedenborg, a highly respected scientist and community leader who began to speak with angels. His detailed records contain information on how the angels spoke, the nature of heaven and hell, and the spiritual function of the universe. From this information he developed a plan for spiritual living that could enhance people’s lives. 60 minutes.
