What characterized Mary Baker Eddy’s time as preacher of the Church of Christ, Scientist?
Sherry Darling is Project Manager and Lead Researcher for The Mary Baker Eddy Library’s Pilot Papers Project. She joined Senior Researcher Mike Davis to discuss this period in Eddy’s life. Their conversation opened up what Mary Baker Eddy’s sermons—newly available through mbepapers.org—illustrate about her early efforts at sharing Christian Science with a wider audience. In addition to providing details about the Papers Project and the rich history it reveals, Darling talked about the value of making archives available to the public online. Davis spoke from his experience in providing much of the contextual and historical information as annotation to the sermons.
