Specifically, I want to show that Blake's ecumenical prophetic tradition involves the sanctification of concubinage in the Qur'an and Swedenborg's doctrine on conjugal love, which led to doctrinal disputes among London Swedenborgians as discussed in Marsha Keith Schuchard's book (—39).

Kathleen Raine became immersed in the study of William Blake when she was a student at Cambridge University.

That there were parallels between Kabbalistic and Tantric traditions concerning the big toe sheds some light on two obscure passages in Swedenborg's diary and Blake's Milton.
