New article online: James F. Lawrence, “Correspondentia: A Neologism by Aquinas Attains its Zenith in Swedenborg”

We just published an advance version of James F. Lawrence’s article “Correspondentia: A Neologism by Aquinas Attains its Zenith in Swedenborg.” The article, which can be read in Volume 5 (2017), “performs a word history on correspondentia, a neo-Latin construction by Thomas Aquinas in Scholastic thought attempting to interpret Aristotle on the perception of truth, and then tracks succeeding circles of the neologism’s utility.” This study is important for both the Swedenborg enthusiasts as well as anyone interested in “Western esotericism” and cultural history.
