The Library’s collections of original materials are used to create permanent and temporary exhibits.
This interactive touchtable provides access to the Library’s extensive collection and is part of the “How Do You See the World?” experience—including the Mapparium™ walk-through globe—at 210 Massachusetts Avenue. The table offers an opportunity to explore the life, ideas, and achievements of Mary Baker Eddy, as well as the history of Christian Science.
“Celebrating 100 Years of Christian Scientists in Military Chaplaincy”
The Library celebrates a century of Christian Science participation in military chaplaincy. Our latest exhibit gathers together documents, photographs, and objects that demonstrate the impact these individuals have made in serving the United States armed forces and their church.
Christian Science chaplains have served in every major conflict since World War I. These men and women provide counseling to soldiers, conduct religious observances, engage in community service, and offer healing prayer to anyone asking for it.
