|Profession:||Philosopher, Scientist, Theologian, Writer|
Emanuel Swedenborg was born in Stockholm, Sweden. He was a Swedish scientist, philosopher, theologian, and writer. He is best known for his book on the afterlife, Heaven and Hell. He studied physics, mechanics, geography, astronomy, and mathematics. He had a prolific career as an inventor and scientist. While his early life comprised of science study and discoveries, his later life focused on the spiritual aspects of life, where he experienced dreams and visions. He claimed that he was appointed by the Lord to pen down a heavenly doctrine to reform Christianity. His work also includes explanation on the theory of Trinity and on the doctrine of salvation. For the remaining 28 years of his life, he wrote eighteen published theological works, and several more which were unpublished. He termed himself a "Servant of the Lord Jesus Christ" in True Christian Religion, a work he published himself.
