De Hemelsche Leer 3 Volume Set (First thru Seventh Fascicles)

[ enlarge ]
In January 1930, Ernst Pfeiffer (1890-1979), the Dutch General Church minister in the Hague, started a Dutch magazine entitled De Hemelsche Leer (The Heavenly Doctrine). The three leading theses propounded in "De Hemelsche Leer" were:
1. The Writings of Emanuel Swedenborg are the Third Testament of the Word of the Lord. The DOCTRINE OF THE NEW JERUSALEM CONCERNING THE SACRED SCRIPTURE must be applied to the three Testaments alike.

2. The Latin Word without Doctrine is as a candlestick without light, and those who read the Latin Word without Doctrine, or who do not acquire for themselves a Doctrine from the Latin Word, are in darkness as to all truth (cf. S. S. 50-61).

3. The genuine Doctrine of the Church is spiritual out of celestial origin, but not out of rational origin. The Lord is that Doctrine itself (cf. A. C. 2496, 2497, 2510, 2516, 2533, 2859; A. E. 19).

The monthly magazine De Hemelsche Leer was written in Dutch, since this was the native language of The First Dutch Society of the General Church of the New Jerusalem in the European country, The Netherlands.

In 1938, the doctrinal papers written for De Hemelsche from its beginning in 1930 through 1936 were translated into English and published through the generosity of the Rev. Theodore Pitcairn, whose wife was Dutch.  The English translations of De Hemelsche Leer were divided into a three volume set:

The publication of the Fascicles of De Hemelsche Leer gave English speaking members of the General Church the opportunity to read for themselves what had become part of the natural speech and thought for many in the Dutch Society.

The title page of the English version of De Hemelsche Leer explains the purpose of the monthly Dutch Magazine:
