A documentary which
explores the central themes of Emmanuel Swedenborg’s life and
work, charting his journey from 18th century scientific genius to visonary,
mystical savant - messiah to some, madman to others. Filmed on location
in London and Stockholm, with special access to Swedenborg's summer
house, garden and personal diaries, the film examines the influence
Swedenborg's varied writings have had in the spheres of art, science,
literature, mysticism and religion, presenting an introduction to the
enigma regarded by Borges as 'the most interesting man in recorded history'.
