A Lexicon to the Latin Text of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg free pdf "A Lexicon to the Latin Text""of the Theological Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg (16881772)" by Dr. John Chadwick and Dr. Jonathan S. Rose is a unique specialist dictionary of fourteen thousand Neo-Latin words and their usages as contained in eighteenth-century theological works of Emanuel Swedenborg. Beyond its use for scholars of Swedenborg, the "Lexicon" is also of great assistance to students and academics of history, philosophy, theology and science, and anyone who encounters texts written in Neo-Latin (the branch of Latin that was in use by learned writers and thinkers from the Renaissance period through to the Enlightenment and beyond). The "Lexicon" is beautifully and simply designed and easy to navigate. In addition to a preface by editor John Chadwick, this edition also features a new introduction by Jonathan S. Rose containing an important section on the morphology of Swedenborg s Neo-Latin (as distinct from the morphology of classical Latin)- an appreciation of the life of John Chadwick by John Elliott- an appendix with a detailed listing of the various Latin editions of Swedenborg s theological works- and an appendix on Swedenborg s use of the Latin Bible of Sebastian Schmidt."
