  3. 3. 1 N TRO DU CTI 0 N. •THE purpose of this CONCORDANCE is to make the Theological W ritings of Emanuel Swedenborg more accessible in an theil fulness to every readerand student of them, whether learned or unlearned. .A t present no one can feel sure that he knows or can find everything thatis contained in the Writings on any given subject. And eyen when we aresure of the existence of sorne passage that we desire to find, how often, havingnone but the existing works of reference to aid us, are we overwhehned anddeterred from making an investigation by the dreary prospect of a searchthrough from forty to fifty volumes of compact matter! A readers attentionmay also be arrested by sorne statement which appears to be at variance withOHe or more other statements he has met with elsewhere in the Writings.Yet he has frequently no means of referring back; and even if he should findthe passage or passages he remembers to have read, the apparent discrepancylllay after all be explicable only by reference to another passage, which formsthe connecting link, but on which he cannot lay his hands, and of the veryexistence of which he may indeed be ignorant. The CONCORDANCE 10 SWEDENBORG now offered to the Church is the resultof between thirteen and fourteen years of labour, * and claims to be exhaustiveand complete. Every theological work of Swedenborg has been gone overtwice, word hy word. The works not published by Swedenborg hirnself, suchas the Apocalypse Explained, the Spiritual Diary, and the Adversaria, aswell as the shorter treatises, have an been included within the scope of theCONCORDANCE. So have the srnall treatises and fragments of a theologicalnature of which Swedenborg was the author, and which have recently beenpublished in the work entitled Documents concerning Swedenborg, by ProfessorR. L. Tafel, M.A. A new translation has been made of the whole of the matter in the CON-CORDANCE. Unity of style and system is thus rnaintained throughout. Inmaking this translation two principal objects have been kept steadily in view.The first is reverent fidelity to the original. The second is the QueensEnglish. In aU cases, however, the artieles in the CONCORDANCE have been if. This period is exclusive of the time occupied in making a clean and revised copy, and in Beeing the Workthrough the press, which will probably be abollt eight years more.
  4. 4. VI INTRODUCTION.based upon the original Latin words, so that no changes in the translationwould affect the matter they contain. For example, aH passages containingin the original the word coelestis have been arranged in regular and consecu­tive order under one heading, whether that word in the passages placed underthat general head be translated celestial or heavenly. And so, on the otherhand, in cases where one English word has to do dutY for two or more Latinones, as in the case of the word man, the passages have been distributedinto two articles, Man-homo, and Man-viT, according to the occurrenceof the two Latin words in question. Therefore, while the CONCORDANCE isaH in English, it is at the same time based upon the Latin of the originalWritings. The passages of the Word quoted in the extracts consist strictly oftranslations frorn the Latin of Swedenborg. The original Hebrew and Greekof the Scriptures have IlOt been regarded, except to determine the precisesense in which Swedenborg has used his Latin tenns. It has been consideredto be no part of the business of this W ork to fnrnish any translations ofpassages from the W·ord, except those made by Swedenborg himself renderedliterally into English. The English Versions of the Scriptures have thereforealso been disregarded whenever they could not be used as a translation of theLatin, but they have always been preferred to any other rende ring when, as atranslation of the Latin of Swedenborg, they were as good as any other. Inrelation to passages quoted from the Word, as in relation to all the lest of the Writings, fidelity to the Latin Originals of Swedenborg has been theparamount law of translation. At the time when the CONCORDANCE was commenced, nearly the whole of the translations of the Writings into English were too imperfect for use. This rendered a new translation necessary. Since that time, however, a number of excellent translations have appeared, sorne in America and others in Great Britain; and in making the clean and revised copy for the press, these new translations have been introduced, so far as could be done without interfering with the unity of the Work. Cross references are made use of whenever necessary. The reader, for instance, who turns to the word Heavenly, will find there a reference to Celestial. In view of this system of cross references, it has been the constant aim togive as great a variety as possible of good translations of the Latin wordswhich forrn the basis of the articles. A reader might think of one suchtranslation and not of another; but whichever he thought of, he would alwaysfind either a reference or a cross refere~ce under that heading. Take such aword as Inesca1e. This word has been translated in various passages quotedin the CONCORDANCE, addicted to, satu1ated with, given up to, made habitual,
  5. 5. INTROD UCT.JON. vüall of which are good translations in the places w here they are used. . Thereader, therefore, will find a reference under Addict to all the passages whereInescare occurs in the original. But if he shouJd not happen to think of theword addict, and instead there should occur to him any one of the expressions,saturated, given up to, or habitual, on turning to the particular expression hethought of, he would find there a cross reference to Addict. A complete V ocabulary and Index of all the Latin Vords that occur 111the headings of the various articles will be given at the end of the Work. The CONCORDANCE con tains nearly eight thousand articles arranged 111the English alphabetical order, and ranging in length from a single line tomany pages. In order to render the work of reference to the W ritings themselves easyfor the reader, it has been found necessary to sub-divide aIl the longer sectionsof the original worles. Thishas been done on one uniform plan throughout.The subdivisions have been made according to the sense, and have beenindicated by the figures 2, 3, 4, and so on, placed at the upper right handcorner of the reference numerals. The reference is made thus, E. 7013°, whichmeans that the passage thus marked will be found in the Apocalypse Explained,No. 701;-subdivision 30. No. 701 of the Apoc. Ex. fills thirteen octavo pages,and reference to it without subdivision wou Id probably involve much weari­SOIlle and vexatious searching. In order to make these subdivisions availableto all, it is intended to give a complete list of them at the end of the CON­CORDANCE, so that those who wish to do so can copy them into their ownvolumes. The Swedenborg Society has alreadyadopted the subdivisions inthe new translation of The Intercourse of the Soul and the Body, and it ishoped that they will be gradually introduced into the new editions of thevVritings. Several of the posthumous works of Swedenborg have never been pub­lished in English; as De Domino, De Athanasii Symbolo, De Ultimo Judicio,De Verbo, De ConJugio. The paragraphs of these works were either notnumbered in a regular manne l, or were not numbered at ail, by Swedenborg;nor were they numbered by Dr Immanuel Tafel in his editions. It was there­fore necessary to number the paragraphs of these works for the sake ofreference in the CONCORDANCJ<;. It is hoped that all these important worksmay soon be published in English, and that the numbering of the paragraphsmade for the CONCORDANCE may be introduced, bracketed, into them. TheDoctrine of Charity stands in a similar category. This W ork has indeedbeen translated, in both America and England, but in both cases the para­graphsrhave been numbered in an irregular manner, according to the judgmentof thè translators. These numberings, therefore, neither agree with theactual paragraphs of the original, nor with each other. In these circumstances
  6. 6. viii INTRon VeTION.it has seemed best to number this work on the same system as the otherunnum bered posthumous works; and, at the saIlle time, to furnish a Keybetween aIl these numberings of the Doctrine of Charity, which will be foundat the end of each volume of the CONCORDANCE. The arrangement of the passages under one headiug is consecutive,beginning with the Arcana Cœlestia, and running in chronological orderthrough aIl the works quoted. As a general rule, each article in the CON­CORDANCE is separated into two divisions, the first of which contains anquotations from the works published by Swedenborg himself, and the second,quotations from the works which have been published from the MSS. sincethe decease of Swedenborg. Eaeh division is arranged in chronological order.The article Swedenborg, however, for obvious reasons, is arrangeù inabsolute cbronological order throughout, without respect to the fact of thequotations being from works that were published by Swedenborg himself, orotherwise. The inducement has been great to arrange aU the articles in thisorder; but the consideration of the importance of the fact that Swedenborgdid not himself publish certain of his works, has been held sufficient toentitle the works which were pubJished by him to precedence of quotation inaIl cases except the one just referred to. Capital Letters have been used at the beginning of words to mark adistinction in the sense. Thus, wh en the word Celestial is used as asubstantive in the singular, it is always so distinguished. In this way, theCelestial (principle) is discriminated from the celestial (persons). So withaIl other Latin neuter adjectives used as substantives, except those of whichEllglish equlyalents have already become naturalized in our vernacular. Bythe use of a capital initial also, Heaven, the abode of the Angels, is dis­tinguished from heaven, the sky; and Spirit, a man after death, fromspirit, a mans mind. These two instances carry with them the correlativesHeIl, and Angel, and render it necessary, on the ground of consistency, tadistinguish these also with initial capitals. Other instances of the saIlle kindwill be easily understood. It may be useful, however, to explain a fewinstances of a different kind. When the word Own stands for the Latinword proprius, it is printed with a capital in order to indicate that facto Avery important case is that of the word Knowledge, which, thus printed,stands for cognitio; whereas, without the capital, it stands for scientia.A similar instance to this is Gentiles, which, with the capital, is the repre­sentative of Gentiles; but without it, of gentes. Earth, again, with thecapital, indicates teUus; without it, terra. FinaIly, to this class belongsPower, which, when piinted with the capital, stands for potestas; but, whenprinted without it, for potentia. While this CONCOItDANCE claims to be complete, the fact must not be over·
  7. 7. INTRODUCTION. 1lllooked that it is a selection. A Concordance to Swedenborg cannot beanything more than that. In the first place, the words themselves have tobe selected. l t is evident that, in sucb a work, regular references to conjunc­tions, prepositions, and pronouns would be worse than useless. Yet, in sorneinstances, references to even these classes of words are nseful and necessary.While, for example, it would be absurd to refer regularly to the cOlljunctionand, there are still a few cases in which this word demands a reference; andif the reader will turn to the article And, he will find there fi ve referenceswhich could not have been omitted from the Work. Out of tens of thousandsof passages in which the word and occurs, these five had to be selected.This is an extreme case, but the same rule is of universal application. Themost important article in the CONCORllANCE is Lord; but even this wordcannot be referred to in every instance. 10 do that, and give the extraets,would be to make the article Lord fin a volume; while to give the referenceswithout the extracts, would be to produce whole pages of mere figures thatwould be of no practical use ta anyone. Every passage, therefore, nay, everyword, has had to pass under judgment; and each reference or extract in theYork has had to be considered indi vidually. This was inevitable, unless theCONCORDANCE were to fill forty volumes instead of four. The disadvantage is,that the CONCORDANCE, being the result of the judgment of one man,cannot be expected to satisfy the judgment of every other man; but theCompiler has always worked on this principle : to insert not only those referenceswhich he hil1lself considered to be of consequence, but also ta in sert those whichhe thought it possible for anyone else to consider of consequence. In doubtfulcases, the rule has been to give the reference. Still, with the most patienteare, it cannot but be that in such a work many imperfections must exist.Omissions are inevitable. l t is therefore intended to form an ApPENDIX ofany such omissions as may be discovered, and to print it at the end of thefourth volume; and aIl friends of the W ork, who may notice anything of thekind, are kindly requested to make note of the same, and to fonvard aIl theirnotes to the Compiler in time for insertion in the Appendix. While, however, it seems fair and necessary to say as much as this inregard to the inevitable imperfection of the Work, an imperfection which isa necessary characteristic of aIl human productions, it is by no means intendedto convey the impression that the CONCORDANCE is, after aIl, an incomplete andunsatisfactory work of reference. The W ork aims at being really complete,without being at the same time overloaded with matter which would be of nopractical use to anyone. 10 make perfectly clear what is meant by uselessmatter, let us take the most familiar and best knowll passage in the W ritings :AIl religion has relation to life, and the life of religion is to do good. Thispassage contains twelve different words; but ont of these twelve, only four
  8. 8. INTRODUCTION.are referred to in the CONCORDANCE. These are religion, life, and the wordsdo good, which are treated under one heading. The other eight words arenot referred to at aIl. It could serve no useful purpose to refer to the wordaIl in this passage; the word relation, although in itself an important word,does Ilot occur in the original, being an invention of the translators; and therernaining Vords in the passage are mere part.icles. In a Concordance to the Word even particles ought to be referred to, because in that verbally inspired Vork every jot and tittle are Divine. But that is not the case with the Vritings. A mere mechanical construction of a Swedenborg Concordance would therefore resultin the production of a work, which, from its veryinception, would be doomed to be superseded. Probably three quarters of itwould be absolutely useless, and would therefore, by their very presence,tend to defeat the purpose of the Work. The paramount consideration which confronts anyone who undertakes avVork like this, remains, therefore, precisel..,. that which ought to be theparamount consideration in everything: the consideration of use. What usecan it be to insert this reference l is the question which must be incessantlyasked. Use must be the judge and the jury. In sorne cases, however, it maybe of use to insert references which are intrinsically worthless, because theymay be useful to the linguists, the critics, the translators of the New Church. In such cases, the word in question may occur only a very few times in aIl theW ritings. l t is clear, therefore, that every one of these occurrences must befaithfully recorded. Whereas, should a word of this order be of very frequentoccurrence, being in itself a word of no significance in relation to its sense ormeaning, it is sufficient to give a few specimens of its occurrence selected fromarious parts of the W ritings. Parallel with the consideration of use, and involved in it, is the considerationof honesty. Any dereliction in this respect would be simply infamous. The vVorks to which the CONCORDANCt<; is a humble handmaid are reaBy Works ofthe Lord written through Swedenborg, as Swedenborg himself has said. Everystatement in them is therefore of the highest consequence, and no one oughtto be defrauded of access to it. No matter against whose opinions it may militate, the statement must he faithfully recorded. Even should one state­ ment seem to contradict another, still, the dominant consideration must beperfect honesty. There is no use apart from this. And the same rule mustapply also to those statements, so numerous in the Vritings, which are hkely to give offence by their plain outspokenness upon subjects which are usuallyavoided in works intended for general circulation. If it has pleased the Lord to speak to us on these subjects, that is a sufficient reason for making refer­ence to everything He has been pleased to say, or to cause to be said. In.this CONCORDANCE therefore nothing has been shirked, of any kind; nothing
  9. 9. INTROD UCTION. Xlhas been intentionally kept back. In a few cases the quotations have beenmade in the original Latin. but, either in the one language or the other, every­thing has been recorded. The words which are to be referred to having been selected, there stillremains ta be made the selection of the quotatio~s themselves. In a Con­cordance to the Word the makincr of this selection is easy, because the oimmediate context is aIl that is required. Very different, however, i8 thecase with a Swedenborg Concordance. In some instances the immediate con­text is indeed aIl that is required, but this is far from being the general rule.What is required is the immediate sense. Tt is the ideas, not the mere words,which are of consequence. This is especially the ease with the longer articles.As an example of this, take the article Angel, in which the word Angel isreferred to 1916 times. But if t his article Vere constructed by means of anaccumulation of short quotations such as are given in a Biblical Concordance,it would be of comparatively little use. The reader would have to refer tothe Original Works so frequently that the use of the CONCORDANCE in savingtime and labour would he to a great extent destroyed. It would take himmauy days to go through this single article. If he were st,udying the subjectof the Angels, he would have to go through the Writings and make theextracts which are already made for him in this CONCORDANCE; whereas, withthe help of the Work as it stands, he will be spared the impossible part of thislabour. The extracts are sufficiently long and complete to indicate to him thenature of the statements in each case, and he will therefore only have tosupplement the materials thus placed reaùy to his hand, by actual referenceta those portions of the "Vritings which he sees from the CONCOltDANCE to benecessary for his purpose. This has been the consideration kept in viewduring the making of the extracts. 10 quote aIl that would be useful, and nomore, has been the guiding principle. As a general rule, the extracts thus made for the CONCORDANCE have beengi ven in Swedenborgs own words, translated into English, and have not beencondensed by the use of any other words. In sorne places, labour and spacecould indeed have been saved by condensation; but any ad vantage thus gainedwouId have been more than counterbalanced by the elements of uncertaintyand untrustworthiness which would necessarily have been introduced. Where,however, the extract, if made in the very words of Swedenborg, would beextremely long" and at the same time would be of very little use in relation tothe subject of the article, a brief description of what Swedenborg says hasbeen given, but aIl such matter has been enclosed within curved brackets, The following is a complete list of the works of Swedenborg referred toin the CONCORDANCE, including their Latin titles, and the dates of their com­position. Reference to this list will enable the reader to place the extracts

Historia Creationis a J1!Iose tradita.The first treatise written by Swedenborg after the full opening of his spiritualsight, which took place in the middle of April, 1745. This work has neverbeen translated, but it will ue found in the original Latin at the beginningof the Adversaria, in which work it occupies the tirst twenty-five pages. 1745 and 1746. Adversaria. Explicatio in Verbum Historicum VeterisTestamenti. There are three MS. volumes of this work, in each of which theparagraphs are numbered independently, that is to say, each volume commenceswith the numeral 1. There are therefore three separate series of numbers inthe Adversaria, which have been indicated in the CONCORDANOE by the figures l, 2, :-3, prefixed to the ordinary numerals. 1746 and 1747. Adversaria. Es~jas et Je1emias explicati. As thiswork Vas printed by Dr lm. Tafel as Adversaria, Part iv., it is distinguishedin the CmiooRDANOE by the figure 4 prefixed to the ordinary numerals.Swedenborg did not num ber the paragraphs of this MS., but it is not veryfrequently quoted in the CONOORDANOE, and the pages of the Latin editionan:: therefore given in place of the usual paragraph numbers, in the llame wayas is done in the Index Générai of Le Boys des Guays. 114,7 to 1765.

Not translated. This work is really aportion of the Spiritual Diary. During Swedenborgs journey to Swedell in1750, he seems to have kept the record of his spiritual experiences in a littlepocket volume which was pu blished by Dr lm. Tafe! under the naUle of DiariulllMinus; , this little pocket volume he used until the close of N ovember, 1751. ,<While using this little volume, Swedenborg suspended the use of the largerone, and vhen he returned to it, he continued the numbering of the para­graphs therein just as if he had never written the little vol ullle at aIl. Theconsequence is that this little work has been crowded out of its right place.It reaBy come3 in after No. 4544 of the Spiritual Diary, as is shown by thefact that the little volume commences with the number 4545, and it is caHed, Diarium Minus merely because it happens to have been written in a smaBerbook than the lest of the work. 1757 and 1758.

Religionem. l t is due to one of the most faithful and laborious workers in the NewChurch to say that the completeness of the CONCORDANCE has been consider­ably increased by means of the admirable Index Re1um to the ApocalypsisExplicata, recently issued by the American Swedenborg Printing and Publish.ing Society, and the Compiler of which is Dr Samuel H. ,y orcester. Many others have contributed either directly or indirectly to the perfectionof the Work, and among these it is impossible to pass over without speciall:lention the name of the Rev. Dr R. L. Tafel, to whom, in many ways, theCON00RDANCE owes a heavy debt of gratitude. The late Mr Frederic Pitmanalso, during the last few months of his life on earth, rendered invaluableassistance in connection with the seeing of the W ork through the press.Lastly, the C.ommittee of the Swedenborg Society, of London, have noblyundertaken the publication, and have assisted and supported the York inevery possible way; while the General Con vention of the New J erusalem inthe United States of America have manifested the kind interest taken in th(W ork in that country by appointing a Committee to give the most practicalaid in their power towards the successful completion of the CONCORDAN Cl:.
