Christian Science

A religious body founded in 1879 by Mary Baker EDDY, whose discovery of what she named Christian Science resulted from a personal experience of prayer healing in 1866. Her Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the textbook of the Christian Science Church first published in 1875, described this experience. "I knew the Principle of all harmonious Mind-action to be God, and that cures were produced in primitive Christian healing by holy, uplifting faith; but I must know the Science of this healing, and I won my way to absolute conclusions through divine revelation, reason, and demonstration" (109).
