In his Introduction, John Stuart Bogg says that "this
Glossary can be regarded only as a beginning. Much better
work will doubtless be done by other compilers in time tocome." Almost eighty years after these words were writ-ten, Bogg's
remains the best and most compre-hensive work of its kind. Long out of print and in great
demand among many readers of Emanuel Swedenborg's
theological writings, the
is an indispensable refer-
ence for anyone who wishes to understand the precise
meaning of a particular term or phrase encountered in thestandard English translations or in the Latin originals.
The Swedenborg Association is pleased to make Bogg's
available once again, and it gratefully acknowledges
the kind permission of the Swedenborg Society, London,
to reprint this book.
