OR BOOK OF
OF EMANUEL SWEDENBORG.
ADONIS HOWARD, 157, COURT STREET.
This little work is taken from the Apocalypse Explained, beginning with No. 1091 and ending with No. 1229. As it is there published it cannot be read continuously without considerable difficulty, it being a work which is distinct and complete in itself, and yet added in small portions to the sections of another work, which is also complete in itself. To obviate this difficulty and thus to make this treatise more extensively usef it has been thought advisable to publish it separately.

vine Itself, which is called the Father, the Divine
Human which is called the Son, and the Divine
Proceeding which is called the Holy Spirit,
