 for Swedenborgian
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Swedenborgian \Swe`den*bor"gi*an\, n.
     One who holds the doctrines of the New Jerusalem church, as
     taught by Emanuel Swedenborg, a Swedish philosopher and
     religious writer, who was born a. d. 1688 and died 1772.
     Swedenborg claimed to have intercourse with the spiritual
     world, through the opening of his spiritual senses in 1745.
     He taught that the Lord Jesus Christ, as comprehending in
     himself all the fullness of the Godhead, is the one only God,
     and that there is a spiritual sense to the Scriptures, which
     he (Swedenborg) was able to reveal, because he saw the
     correspondence between natural and spiritual things.
     [1913 Webster]
