Mary Baker Eddy
Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910) discovered the biblically based system of healing through prayer known as Christian Science, and established The Church of Christ, Scientist, to preserve and extend it. A native of New Hampshire, she overcame both personal challenges and the prejudices of her time to become an influential author, healer, and religious leader. Her achievements include establishing a religious movement, starting numerous publications—an international newspaper among them—and writing a groundbreaking textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, that has brought inspiration and healing to millions of people around the world. The Mary Baker Eddy Library, located in Boston, provides public access to her extensive writings and historic documents.
