Editorial Reviews

?The insights of anthropology, social psychology, and history are here directed toward an understanding of the community of Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania.... Meyer's traces the evolution of the community's ideas and institutions within a context in which Swedenborg's writings are normative. Her assessment of contemporary Bryn Athyn includes an examination of the community's response to recent external threats of physical or ideological encroachment. Based upon careful community study as well as mastery of the pertinent literature, this is the first extensive study of the Bryn Athyn community by a non-Swedenborgian scholar. ... Appropriate for students at or above upper-undergraduate level and for general readers.?-Choice
