Dr. David Holland, a Research Fellow at The Mary Baker Eddy Library and Associate Professor of North American Religious History at the Harvard Divinity School, and Mike Davis, Senior Researcher at The Mary Baker Eddy Library, held an online audiocast discussion, with questions from the public, on how The Mary Baker Eddy Library collections are bringing about new understanding of Mary Baker Eddy.
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.
The Library hosted a live, hour-long online participatory discussion on biographies of Mary Baker Eddy. We considered their individual perspectives, histories, and agendas, and also looked into their influence on the public’s understanding of Mary Baker Eddy as an important writer and religious leader.
