Emanuel Swedenborg (January 29, 1688 March 29, 1772) was a Swedish scientist, philosopher and mystic. Swedenborg had a prolific career as an inventor and scientist. Then at age fifty-six he claimed that he entered into a new spiritual phase of his life, experiencing first dreams, and later visions of a spiritual world where he talked with angels and spirits, many of them from the Bible, such as Moses and Jesus. Amongst other things, he said these spirits guided his interpretation of the Scriptures.
