Catholic Information 天主教新聞

The believers in the religious doctrines taught by Emanuel Swedenborg.信徒的宗教教義教的伊曼紐爾斯韋登伯格。 As an organized body they do not call themselves Swedenborgians, which seems to assert the human origin of their religion, but wish to be known as the "Church of the New Jerusalem", or "New Church", claiming for it Divine Authorship and promulgation through human instrumentality.作為一項有組織的團體,他們不稱自己為Swedenborgians ,這似乎主張人類起源的宗教,而是要被稱為“教會新耶路撒冷”或“新教會” ,聲稱它神聖的作者和頒布通過人類的工具。


Emanuel Swedenborg was b.伊曼紐爾斯韋登伯格是灣 at Stockholm, 29 Jan., 1688; d.在斯德哥爾摩, 1688年1月29日; d. in London, 29 March, 1772.在倫敦, 1772年3月29號。 His father was Dr. Jesper Swedberg, who later became the Lutheran Bishop of Skara.他的父親是博士Jesper斯威德伯格,誰後來成為路德主教史。 Swedenborg's life falls into two very distinct periods: the first extends to the year 1745 and reveals him as an adept in the mathematical and physical sciences; in the second he appears as a writer on theological subjects. Endowed with extraordinary talents, he completed his university course at Upsala in 1710 and travelled for four years in England, Holland, France, and Germany. Shortly after his return to Sweden, he was appointed by King Charles XII to an assessorship on the Board of Mines (1716).斯韋登伯格的生活分為兩個非常不同的時期:第一次延伸到1745年,揭示他是一個善於在數學和物理科學;在第二,他似乎作為一個作家的神學科目。賦予了非凡的才華,他完成了他的大學當然在烏普薩拉在1710年前往四年來在英國,荷蘭,法國和德國。後不久他返回瑞典,他被任命為國王查爾斯十二至assessorship董事會礦業( 1716 ) 。 He gave signal proof of his engineering ability during the siege of Frederickshall (1718) by inventing a means to transport boats and galleys overland for a distance of fourteen miles. His family was ennobled in 1719, a distinction indicated in the change of the name from Swedberg to Swedenborg.他給了信號證明他的能力在工程圍困Frederickshall ( 1718 )發明的一種手段運輸船和廚房的陸路距離為14英里。他的家人是ennobled在1719年,區別在改變名稱斯威德伯格以斯韋登伯格。 He declined (1724) the chair of mathematics at the University of Upsala and published at Leipzig in 1743 his important "Philosophical and Mineral Works" ("Opera philosophica et mineralia").但他拒絕( 1724 )主席的數學烏普薩拉大學和萊比錫出版在1743年所作的重要“哲學和礦物工程” ( “歌劇哲學等mineralia ” ) 。 A year later appeared his treatise "On the Infinite and Final Cause of Creation" which includes a discussion of the relation between the soul and the body.一年後,似乎他的論文“論無限,並最終創作的原因” ,其中包括討論關係的靈魂和身體。 Another scientific journey took him to Denmark, Germany, Holland, France, and Italy, and in 1740-1741 appeared at Amsterdam one of his larger anatomical works ("Oeconomia regni animalis").另一種科學的旅程將他帶到丹麥,德國,荷蘭,法國和意大利,並在1740年至1741年出現在阿姆斯特丹他的一個較大的解剖工程( “ Oeconomia regni animalis ” ) 。 The trend of his thoughts became distinctly religious in 1734 and exclusively so in 1745.這個趨勢,他的想法是明顯的宗教在1734年和專門以便在1745年。 He alleged that at the latter date Our Lord appeared to him in London, initiated him into the spiritual sense of the Scriptures, and commissioned him to expound it to his fellow men.他聲稱,在後者的日期我們的主似乎他在倫敦,開始他的精神意義上的聖經,並委託他向它闡述他的同胞。 With this vision there began, he declared, an intercourse with God, angels, and spirits which was to terminate only with his death.隨著這一遠景有開始,他宣布,與一個交往上帝,天使,和烈酒是終止與他的只有死亡。 In 1747 he resigned his assessorship and, at his request, received as a pension the half of his salary.在1747年,他辭去assessorship ,並在他的請求,收到退休金的一半的工資。 He now spent his time between London, Amsterdam, and Stockholm, and wrote in Latin his voluminous theological works.他現在度過的時間之間的倫敦,阿姆斯特丹,斯德哥爾摩,並寫在拉丁美洲他浩繁的神學作品。 These soon attracted the attention of the Lutheran clergy of Sweden; a commission was instituted in 1771 to examine them, but took no action against their author.這些很快引起了注意,信義神職人員瑞典;了一個委員會,設立於1771年對他們進行體檢,但沒有採取任何行動對他們的作者。 At his death Swedenborg received the Lord's Supper from a Protestant clergyman, to whom he affirmed his final attachment to his religious principles.在他去世斯韋登伯格收到了上帝的晚餐從新教牧師,向他申明他的最後依戀他的宗教原則。 He was never married, was simple in his habits, worked and slept without much regard to day or night, and lay at times in a trance for several consecutive days.他從未結婚,很簡單在他的習慣,工作和睡覺沒有多少關於白天或晚上,並奠定有時發呆的連續幾天。 In 1908 his remains were transferred from London to Sweden and deposited in the cathedral at Upsala. 1908年,他的遺骨被轉移到倫敦,瑞典和存放在在烏普薩拉大教堂。


Swedenborg and his followers hold that as the Christian religion succeeded the Jewish so the Swedenborgian teaching supplemented the Christian.斯韋登伯格和他的追隨者們認為,作為基督教的猶太人成功地使Swedenborgian教學補充了克里斯蒂安。 This new dispensation promulgated by Swedenborg is, according to them, based on a Divinely revealed interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures.這種新的分配頒布的斯韋登伯格是,根據他們的基礎上,揭示神的解釋聖經的神聖。 Some of the characteristic features of this new religious system are presented in the following outline.一些特徵這一新的宗教系統提出了下列大綱。

God is Love Itself and Wisdom Itself.上帝是愛本身和智慧本身。 His Power is from and according to these as they flow forth into creative act.他的權力是從,並根據這些因為他們流動到創造性的規定的行為。

The Trinity does not consist of three distinct Divine persons as Catholics maintain; but is understood in the sense that in the Incarnation the Father or Jehovah is essentially the Divine Being, while the Son is the human (or sub-spiritual) element assumed by the Godhead in order to become present among men.三一並不包括三個不同的神人,天主教徒維持,但理解的意義,在道成肉身的父親或耶和華基本上是神,而兒子是人類(或分精神)因素所承擔的神體,以便成為本之間的男子。 The Holy Spirit is the Divine Presence and Power consequent upon this assumption and resultant transfiguration (glorification in Swedenborgian language) of the human element which thus became "a Divine Human" with all power in heaven and on earth.聖靈是神的存在和電力因而這一假設,並由此產生的變形(在Swedenborgian美化語言)的人的因素,從而成為“神人”同所有權力在天堂和地球上。 Jesus Christ is, therefore, not the incarnation of a second Divine person, but of the Divine as a whole; he includes the Father (Godhead), the Son (assumed humanity), and the Holy Spirit (Divine-human power).耶穌基督是,因此不能的化身第二個神人,而是神的作為一個整體;包括他的父親(神體) ,子(假定人類)和聖靈(神人權力) 。

Life does not exist except in Him or from Him, and cannot be created.生活並不存在,除非他或他的,不能成立。 Its presence in created forms is accounted for by continuous Divine influx. On this earth man enjoys the highest participation of life, but he is greatly inferior, in this respect, to the races undoubtedly inhabiting other planets, eg Jupiter, Mercury.它在創建形式是由連續神聖的湧入。地球上的人享有最高的參與生活,但他十分低劣,在這方面,毫無疑問,在比賽棲息其他行星,如木星,水星。

His three constituent elements are soul, body, and power.他的三個組成要素的靈魂,身體和力量。

Originally granted full freedom in the use of his faculties, he erroneously concluded that he held them from no one but himself and fell away from God. The Lord, after the fall, did not abandon the sinner, but appeared to him in the form of an angel and gave him the law to reclaim him from his evil ways. These efforts were useless, and God clothed Himself with a human organism and redeemed man, opening anew his faculties to the influx of Divine life. Men are admitted into the New Church through baptism; they are strengthened in the spiritual life by the reception of the Eucharist.最初獲得充分的自由使用他的院系,他錯誤地得出結論認為,他從沒有任何人,但他和下跌遠離上帝。魔戒後,秋天,沒有放棄的罪人,但似乎他的形式一個天使,給他依法收回他從邪道。這些努力是無用的,上帝穿著自己的人體器官和贖回的人,開放學部再次向他的湧入神聖的生活。男性獲准進入新的教會通過洗禮,他們加強了精神生活由接待的聖體。

Justification cannot be obtained by faith alone; good works are likewise necessary.理由不能得到單獨的信念;的優秀作品同樣是必要的。

The seclusion of the cloister is not a help but a hindrance to spiritual growth; the healthiest condition for the latter is a life of action in the world.在與世隔絕的修道院不是一個幫助,但阻礙了心靈成長的健康條件,後者是一個生命的行動在世界上。

Miracles and visions produce no real spiritual change because they destroy the requisite liberty.奇蹟和遠見的生產沒有真正精神的改變,因為它們破壞了必要的自由。

The hope of reward is not to be recommended as an incentive to virtue, for good actions are vitiated when prompted by motives of self-interest. Death is the casting off by man of his material body which has no share in the resurrection.希望獎勵是不被推薦作為獎勵,以美德,良好的行動是無效的提示時的動機,自身利益的考慮。死亡是擺脫人為他的物質機構,沒有分享復活。

Immediately after death all human souls enter into the intermediate state known as the world of spirits, where they are instructed and prepared for their final abodes, heaven or hell.後立即死亡的所有人類靈魂進入中間狀態被稱為世界上的精神,他們在那裡得到指示,並準備其最後abodes ,天堂或地獄。

We need not expect the Last Judgment for it has already taken place; it was held in 1757 in Swedenborg's presence.我們不必期待最後的審判為它已經發生,這是在1757年舉行的斯韋登伯格的存在。

No pure spirits exist; both angels and devils are former members of the human race, have organic forms, and experience sensation.沒有純粹的精神存在;兩個天使和魔鬼的前成員的人類,都有機的形式,和經驗的感覺。

The liturgy of the New Church is is modelled on the Anglican service.該禮儀的新教堂是仿照英國聖公會的服務。 The Church organization in Great Britain is congregational; in the United States most of the various religious societies are grouped in state associations under the charge of general pastors, while the "General Church" (see below) is avowedly episcopal in government.教會組織在大不列顛是公理;在美國大多數的各種宗教的社會分為國家協會的負責一般的牧師,而“一般教會” (見下文) avowedly主教是在政府。


Swedenborg made no attempt at founding a separate Church; he presented his doctrinal works to university and seminary libraries in the hope that they might be of service; how far ahead he thought is uncertain, as he seemed to hold that his followers might be members of any Christian denomination.斯韋登伯格沒有企圖成立一個獨立的教會,他介紹了他的理論工程大學和神學院圖書館的希望,他們可能是服務;如何遙遙領先,他認為是不確定的,因為他似乎認為,他的追隨者可能會成員任何基督教派。 But his views were, in many respects, so entirely new that their adoption made the foundation of a distinct religious body inevitable.但他的意見,在許多方面,因此全新的,它們通過了基礎,獨特的宗教機構不可避免的。 Few accepted his opinions completely during his lifetime.很少接受他的意見完全在他的一生。 They found zealous advocates, however, in two Anglican clergymen, Thomas Hartley, rector of Winwick in Northamptonshire, and John Clowes, rector of St. John's at Manchester.他們發現熱心的倡導者,但是,在兩個英國聖公會牧師,托馬斯哈特利,校長Winwick在北安普敦郡,約翰柯羅威斯,校長聖約翰在曼徹斯特。 These divines rendered his works into English and through the efforts of Clowes, who never separated from the Church of England, Lancashire became at an early date the Swedenborgian stronghold which it still remains today.這些divines使他的作品譯成英文,並通過努力柯羅威斯,誰從來沒有脫離英國國教,成為蘭開夏郡早日據點的Swedenborgian它仍然是今天。 The formal organization of the New Church took place in 1787, and James Hindmarsh, a former Methodist preacher, was chosen by lot to officiate at the inaugural meeting.正式組織的新教堂發生在1787年,詹姆斯欣德馬什,前循道衛理牧師,是通過抽籤決定主持開幕會議。 The first public service was held in 1788 in a chapel at Great Eastcheap, London.第一個公共服務是在1788年在教堂大Eastcheap在倫敦。 Swedenborgian societies were soon formed in various English cities, and in 1789 the first general conference of the New Church met in the place of worship just mentioned. Swedenborgian社會很快形成各種英語城市,並在1789年第一次大會的新教堂舉行的禮拜場所剛才提到的。 The number of adherents did not increase rapidly.數量信徒沒有迅速增加。 The conference has held annual meetings ever since 1815.會議舉行了年度會議自1815年。 Its minutes for 1909 contain the following statistics for England: 45 ministers, 70 societies, 6665 registered members, and 7907 Sunday scholars.它分鐘為1909年包含以下為英格蘭統計: 45個部長, 70個社會, 6665註冊會員,以及7907星期日學者。

The denomination maintains for the training of its ministry the New Church College at Islington, London, and the New Church Theological School at Cambridge, Mass. A preparatory school is located at Waltham, Massachusetts, and an institution for collegiate and university studies at Urbana, Ohio.保持的面額為培訓部的新教會在伊斯靈頓學院,倫敦和紐約教會神學院在美國馬薩諸塞州劍橋籌備學校是位於馬薩諸塞州沃爾瑟姆,一個機構,大學和大學的研究厄巴納,美國俄亥俄州。 The General Church conducts a seminary at Bryn Athyn, Pa., and maintains several parochial schools.一般教會神學院進行了布林莫爾Athyn在賓夕法尼亞州,並保持了教會學校。 The denomination has displayed a remarkable publishing activity.該教派已表現出顯著的出版活動。 The Swedenborg Society was founded in London in 1810 for the printing of Swedenborgian literature and in celebration of its centenary the International Swedenborg Congress met in the English metropolis in 1910.該斯韋登伯格學會成立於1810年在倫敦的印刷Swedenborgian文學和慶祝其百年的國際斯韋登伯格在人民大會堂會見了英國在1910年的大都市。 Other publishing agencies are the New Church Union of Boston, the American Swedenborg Printing and Publishing Society of New York, and a publishing house at Stuttgart, Germany.其他出版機構的新教會聯盟的波士頓,美國斯韋登伯格印刷和出版協會,紐約和一家出版社在德國斯圖加特。 A monumental edition of Swedenborg's scientific works is in course of publication under the auspices of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences.一項艱鉅版斯韋登伯格的科學著作是在出版過程中的主持下,瑞典皇家科學院。 His theological works are available in complete Latin and English editions and have been partly published in numerous modern languages, including Hindu, Arabic, and Japanese.他的神學作品有完整的拉丁和英文版本,並已部分刊登在眾多的現代語言,包括印度,阿拉伯文,日文等。 The New Church publishes two quarterly reviews, some monthly magazines, and several weekly papers.新教會出版兩份季度審查,一些月刊,和幾個每週文件。
