We develop the Dirac-Schwinger-Zwanziger (DSZ) quantization of four-dimensional bosonic ungauged supergravity on an oriented four-manifold M of arbitrary topology and use it to obtain its manifestly duality-covariant gauge-theoretic geometric formulation. Classical bosonic supergravity is completely determined by a submersion π over M equipped with a complete Ehresmann connection, a vertical euclidean metric and a vertically-polarized flat symplectic vector bundle Ξ. We implement the Dirac…
