But so far, it barely exists at all. Suggestions are welcome! I just now looked again the custom Google search, and discovered that my sitemap was too large! I'll subdivide it asap. Some comments on the review of heavenlydoctrines. Your section on cons for heavenlydoctrines. We felt that with the growth of the New Church in parts of the world where Internet service is not yet available or affordable indicated a need for a desktop version. The web version serves the whole world — including those who may never have heard of Swedenborg before.
We anticipate that those who use the web version may be inclined to order the more fully featured desktop version — know as NewSearch 4. Direct reading by passage number — this will be implemented on the web version Choice of which books to search Choice of the order of display of the books to be searched — including alpha, date written, author in case of books and monographs Choice of the order of the results list by occurrences and date written.
We hope to use the web version to introduce people to the Writings for the first time. Some congregations have members that first learned of the New Church through heavenlydoctinres. To further that end we will implement some search engine optimization to try to get more people using it. This year we are starting to explore the inclusion of non English translations of the Writings — specifically Spanish and French. This is a great web site and I plan to use it more I am in the process of downloading web sites on to my own computer I am doing this for two reasons 1.
Unfortunately the New Search 4 site has evaded me so far but I will persevere if any one can help me by suppliying the data files from Dtsearch I would be very appreciative. An excellent additional site is www. Post a Comment. Let me know if I've missed any or if you have a different point of view.
It is currently in version 4. It is powered by dtSearch. Pros: - This engine has by far the most translations available to read and search including the New Century Edition. Cons: - It's controls are not easy to use. You have to individually search for each passage you want to read. Here's a link to this work: " De Verbo ". We finished round-tripping Johnson's English translation of "Miracles and Signs", a small work that Swedenborg left unpublished.
Here's a link to it: " Miracles and Signs ". Courtesy of our friends at Swedenborg Boekhuis in the Netherlands, and some hard work by our team, here's a linked-up translation of Swedenborg's capstone work, " Ware Christelijke Religie ".
See a Problem?
We're now offering pathways -- ways that people can explore particular areas of interest, and easily find true ideas that they can use in their lives. Here's a link to the main pathways page. That's about 2. We just imported 10 new episodes of Jonathan Rose's Spirit and Life bible study series. The interface includes reference links to the Bible, making it easy for you to follow along as you watch the videos.
Here's a link to part 1 of his new 7-part series, " A Way Forward ," which looks at the events depicted in the biblical exodus as a picture of how we as individuals, and as a world culture, can move forward spiritually. We deployed an updated software stack recently; it's been helping keep page load speeds in a reasonable range despite the growing traffic. There's a long way to go to be one of the biggest Bible study sites, but we're heading in a good direction.
We just added a Russian UI to the site, thanks to generous translation help from friends of the project in Ukraine. Now Russian speakers will have a much better experience using the site to access the Russian translations of the Bible and Swedenborg's theological works that we have collected so far. Here's a link. We just added a "read-aloud" function to the site, to help with handicapped accessibility and with multi-tasking.
Look for the little speaker icon near the content titles on each page - click to play, click again to stop. Hat tip to the software tools developed by ResponsiveVoice. They support many languages, and don't require special plugins. We just added a new user interface in Georgian as in the Republic of Georgia. Christianity there dates back at least to the early 4th century, and now a New Christian group is thriving there.
Four of Swedenborg's works have already been translated, and they're linked up and online. We've been pleased to get a nice set of brief explanations of spiritual topics and doctrinal terms, from Rev. Julian Duckworth. You'll find more than of them from our "spiritual topics" hub page, and in some places, we've added his insights to existing topics, where there was overlap.
It's good stuff! Here's a link to one example entry on "Wars". This brings our total to There are some really good titles here, e. These take an hour each, roughly, but they sure are thought-provoking. We've been deploying some more improvements to our search functionality. Excerpts in search results get you to the right neighborhood quickly. Highlighting in search results is better. Navigation between results is easier. The hit counter is more intuitive. You can show all results, if the first aren't enough.
Lots of nice new touches to make your searching faster and easier. Here's a nice thing: we just imported of Jonathan Rose's Bible Study classes. They include more than 4, reference links to the Bible, making it easy for you to follow along in the Bible as you watch the videos. The whole series can be found here. We also link from the Bible text to these talks, where relevant references are made.
Many thanks to Jonathan and his team for the permission to use these! And to the volunteer who compiled all those Bible references - wow. If you know other ministers or Bible explainers whose work - text, audio, video - we should be importing, send them our way. We're making search easier and more powerful, too but that's another blog post Same goes for Swedenborg's works, and for explanations.
Page load times have been cut from a tedious 1. We did a bunch of work to optimize data retrieval, and We have been rolling out some search function updates, improving speed, and providing more search and navigation options. The quicksearch function from the main toolbar is back. You might need to clear your browsing history, or close and re-open your browser, if search results aren't showing at first. Here's another new story explanation, this time about the first commandment, "Thou shalt have no other gods The 10 commandments are fundamental to life.
It's not random that this is the first one; it's the starting point for us. We offer the story of the 10 commandments, and then an explanation of it - courtesy of the Swedenborg and Life video series by the Swedenborg Foundation. Here's a link to the story. We just posted a new story explanation, on the famed, and feared, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. You can read the story, and then see an explanation of it - and how it applies to our lives - courtesy of the Swedenborg and Life video series by the Swedenborg Foundation.
We just posted a Chinese translation of the second half of True Christian Religion. This work was published by Emanuel Swedenborg in , and the translation was just finished a few weeks ago. Our online version is complete with cross links and links to the Word. Here's a link to section 1. We just posted an Italian translation of Heaven and Hell. This work was published by Emanuel Swedenborg in , and the translation was done in by Fondazione Swedenborg in Italy. Here's a link to section 1 of Cielo e inferno.
For our Czech-speaking friends That makes 5 Italian translations fully linked up, and two more online as. We've just posted two more translations of Heaven and Hell, one in German, and one in Swedish. The commentary is by Fortunatianus of Aquileia. It's the earliest Latin commentary, and the earliest Latin Bible text, so it's important in two ways. Here's an article about it that includes a link to an English translation by Hugh Houghton. We're just wrapping up a highly successful translation-importing summer work session. With help from 5 high school and college students, other volunteers, and our core team, we imported 51 more translations of books of the Writings, in Korean, Japanese, German, Italian, Serbo-Croatian, Russian, Dutch, and Czech, bringing the total to We're now offering Swedenborg's works online, linked to the Word and to each other, in 17 languages, which are spoken by more than 3.
This nearly brings in all the extant Czech translations, which… is pretty exciting! Korean: We added a Korean translation of the Doctrine of Sacred Scripture, bringing our Korean count to 6 works online, and 3 others coming. We just imported a Chinese translation of Conjugial Love. That brings the count of Chinese translations to 5! Only 13 more to go. We've had over 1 million visits to the website in the past 12 months! If website traffic continues to grow at the same rate, we'll see 2 million visits in the next 12 months. We just imported and linked up Rev.
It's a fairly brief and accessible by Swedenborg's standards treatment of the nature of God. This work was really disruptive when it was published in , since it flew in the face of the traditional Christian views on the Trinity. We just imported a Korean translation of Doctrine of the Lord. Take a look! It's about how to become a good person, and live a good life. It's a relatively practical, accessible work, and it clearly presents the New Christian view on the marriage of faith and charity. All of its references to the Word, and to other theological works, are live links, so it's easy to follow Swedenborg's train of thought.
It also makes it easy for the user to see how thoroughly this theology about faith is grounded in Scripture. One of today's most interesting commentators on spiritual life, from a New Christian perspective, is Curtis Childs. Curtis has a weekly online show, and he's also the main on-screen talent for the Swedenborg and Life YouTube channel. We've had some of those videos linked in for a while, but we're making a systematic effort now to link in more of them.
Here are 3 examples:. We just added more links to Bible commentary in the right side slider pane "Study the Inner Meaning" button. This way, if for example you are reading in Isaiah, you will be able to see related works of commentary, including ones that we haven't yet been able to fully parse and import at the chapter and verse levels.
This takes us very close to having New Christian commentary for the whole Word. Before: We had the text online, but there were no links from it to scripture or to cross-references. After: We have the links! Some 75, of them. Many thanks to the team that wrote the code to automate most of it, and to the team that fixed the last or so cases by hand. So, now people can read a nice modern translation of Swedenborg's great exegesis of Genesis and Exodus. We've gathered lots of New Christian commentary on the Word; 28 commentaries by 15 different commentators.
It's clean and tidy, and nicely organized here. If you're reading the Word, and wondering what it means… you'll find some answers on this page. We just deployed a Dutch interface for the site. The 23 million Dutch speakers of the world can now read the Bible while exploring Swedenborg's works, all in a comfortable language for finding their way around the site.
We've now got 27 commentaries by New Church scholars either fully imported, or linked in as. Three more works are on deck, and there are a few still outstanding. Almost the whole Word is covered. You can read the Word, and get the benefit of New Christian exegesis right at your fingertips. If you're leading a Bible study group, or teaching Sunday school, or preparing a sermon, or just studying on your own Here's a link to some of them: Bible Commentary. The two by John Clowes are from the s; the one by Geoffrey Childs is from They're all thoughtful and thought-provoking, and they're helpful to us as we work to understand and appreciate what really happened during the Lord's life on earth.
These and many others can be found on our Bible Commentary page. It will be fun to achieve that goal. Google just made a search algorithm change that seems to appreciate our site; giving us another bump upward. We just posted a cleaned-up version of Precepts of the Decalog, a draft outline that Swedenborg wrote in preparation for his work, Doctrine of the Lord. Here's the link: Precepts of the Decalog. Swedenborg's careful Bible exegesis explanation inspired many New Christian theologians to build on that foundation.
We have been pushing hard to gather, clean, and post the work of those scholars. First, it's good, useful work in its own right, but it's gotten so scarce that it's almost lost.
It's begging to be linked to the text of the Word online. Some of this explanatory literature has been imported into our system. Some is waiting on deck, and - it's good, and we wanted to make sure you knew it was there. Here's the link: Bible Commentary. Second, we this work can be a great resource for people who want to produce modern explanations, e.
We welcomed more than 94, visitors for the last 30 days; it's more good growth! We're glad you're all finding our site, and we hope you're getting good ideas that you can put to use in your lives. Thanks for visiting, and come back soon! It's demanding to work with Swedenborg's Latin. If you've been following along at home, you'll know that we've been trying to automate the cleanup and importing processes - writing code that recognizes paragraphs, links to the Word, cross-references to other works, footnotes, etc.
With the Latin, we have to pay extra attention to preserving Swedenborg's text as it was, while still marking it up so that links work. TCR has numbered sections, and in them, Swedenborg makes scripture references and cross-references. Our automation helped, and we're ramping it up further, but this one needed a lot of careful hand editing. It's important that it's done. This was Swedenborg's capstone theological work, and with a clean, exportable Latin foundation, future translators will be able to work much faster.
We just created new, bigger, better sitemaps to help Google, Bing and other search engines crawl and index the site. We've submitted more than 17 million distinct pages now. It's a big site! Divine Love is a reinforcing loop, but They now have links to Bible verses, cross references, and active footnotes. Swedenborg leaned on this draft, using elements of it in one of his major published works, Divine Love and Wisdom.
You can find them in the stories table here. That makes 2 works fully imported and linked up, and another 13! We've now added chapter and verse-level explanations of the inner meaning of the Book of Deuteronomy. Again, a shout-out to our friends at BibleMeanings. We've just imported chapter and verse-level explanations of the inner meaning of the books of Leviticus and Numbers. These are from two books by Rev. Henry MacLagan, published in London, in and Many thanks to our friends at BibleMeanings. If you want to see what the original Hebrew for the Old Testament , or Greek for the New Testament looks like, when you're reading the Word We've added a dynamic link there, to qBible, one of the best places online to get back to the source languages.
If we keep that up, it will be more than a million visits annually. It's another milestone on the big journey.
Many thanks to the many, many people and organizations that are supporting this project. It seems to be working. In that Republic, there's a Swedenborg Society. In that Society, the people are working to translate Swedenborg's works into Georgian. We've been wanting to try importing one for a while. We finally got a chance to try it. It's a beautiful alphabet! Here's a link to Heaven and Hell, in Georgian. Have a look! If it doesn't look right, see if you can get the Sylfaen font. We're scouting for a translation of the Word in Georgian. We've found the New Testament, but if anyone knows of a translation of the Old Testament, too, please let us know!
We're on a roll. Now we've added explanations of the inner meaning of each chapter of the Gospels of Matthew and John, by Rev. John Clowes. See the post below for details about Rev. We just imported chapter-level explanations of the inner meaning of the entire Gospels of Mark and Luke. These were written by Rev. John Clowes, the Rector of St. John's Church in Manchester, England, in the mid s. Clowes was a scholar of Greek, and a very influential Anglical clergyman. He was a deep scholar of Swedenborg's works. His writing style is old-fashioned, of course, but the explanations are sound.
These summaries will be great resources for Bible readers! We deployed a Portuguese interface for the site. That's good for the million Portuguese speakers of the world; they now have the Bible and Swedenborg's works available AND a comfortable language for finding their way around the site. Try it out! It's "user interface news" day: We just posted a UI for German-speakers, too. We have 4 Bible translations for them, but only one of Swedenborg's works so far.
More are in the pipeline. Tell your German-speaking friends!
It's one more step towards making this a great site for a global audience of Bible readers who are looking for the inner meaning of the Word. We posted around 50 more sermons by the late Rev. William Woofenden. Bill Woofenden was one of the leading lights of the General Convention branch of the New Church, and his sermons are rich with references to the Word. This work to take sermons from his "barrel" and get them online and linked to Bible stories was partly funded by the Louis Iungerich Fund. We've worked with Rev. We just imported a Swedish translation of "Divine Love". It's a short work that Swedenborg left in draft form, but it provides a condensed preview of the longer treatment of the same subject in the longer published work, "Divine Love and Wisdom".
Many thanks to Rev. We round-tripped the Latin edition of Heaven and Hell, or "De Coelo et De Inferno", so it's now much easier to use - with links to all the scripture references and cross references, plus sorted-out footnotes. Of course, there are English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese and Korean translations on the site, too, in case your Latin is rusty, or non-existent! Even better, more than , times, people have come back, to read, learn, and study more. The growth has been remarkable; people can see that there's an inner meaning contained within the Bible, and they sense that spirituality is at the heart of being human.
Be sure to enjoy the selection of Christmas stories and art and commentary from our home page. If you're on a small screen, just scroll down to see what's on offer. Here's a link: Sobre La Palabra. This is the second Japanese translation of one of Swedenborg's works available on our site. More to follow! Swedenborg published 18 theological works. We've found 14 French translations, so far. Here's a link to a newly tidied, linked up original Latin text of De Divina Providentia.
We just added another ! Todd Beiswenger, in which he explains stories from the Word, and shows how they can apply to our lives today. They're good - relaxed, interesting, and applicable! We just deployed the Latin text of "Apocalypse Revealed". Its scripture references and cross references are all linked up and online.
That's a world first! This will be a big help to translators; one is starting on a Latin-to-Chinese translation now. Thanks to everyone who's been supporting this project! It's working. Swedenborg cited more than Bible passages in building up a true picture of the nature of God. With it online in French, it's available to million more people! We've just deployed a Chinese user interface. There's still some work to do on it, but we want to get it out there; it's good!
Now 1 billion more people can use our site to read the Word, read 4 of Swedenborg's works, and soon - very soon - read some translated explanations. We've had it in our system for a while, but we hadn't fished out all the more than references to scripture and Swedenborg's other works. Now we have! This work is now more accessible than ever, and it's needed, because the literal sense of the Apocalypse is so confusing. When we first imported the text of Swedenborg's theological works, it was all just text. No working links, no distinct footnotes - just text. We've been at some pains, since, to add those things.
In our second pass, we used a list of Swedenborg's references to Bible based on Searle's "General Index to Swedenborg's Scriptural Quotations" that we got from the Kempton Project, and we showed those links below the related passages. Next, in our third pass, we used data from Jan and Walter Weiss's work, to tag the text of links in the Potts translation of Arcana Coelestia.
Then, in a fourth pass through the data, we wrote a program to try to find and tag the boundaries of references in the text of one translation of each of Swedenborg's works. That worked ok, but there were lots of problem cases that we were trying to fix by hand, which was too time-consuming. On our 5th pass, we've built tools to export files with markup, run some cleanup and linking routines on them, and then check them. Once the errors are fixed, we re-import them.
It's still time-consuming, but much faster than it's ever been before. We've mostly been working our way up from short works to long works, and we're now into the updating of Apocalypse Revealed, which is Swedenborg's second-longest published work, at passages. Now we're working on cleaning and linking in the Latin original, partly because it needs doing, and partly because there's a translator champing at the bit to translate it from Latin to Chinese.
We ran a 3-week-long project with a talented team of Latin students - and they worked their way through the processing of 19! They worked in Latin, English, Dutch, Korean, and Czech, and have brought our total offering to translations, in 11 languages. There's still a long way to go, but this was great progress! We just imported a Chinese translation of Divine Love and Wisdom , with links and all. Thanks to Helen! We just imported a Korean translation of Divine Love and Wisdom , again with all the links.
