On June 13 at 2pm join The Mary Baker Eddy Library for a follow-up to the Library’s Annual Meeting program held the previous weekend. Staff members Jonathon Eder, Steve Graham, Mike Hamilton, and Judy Huenneke will discuss their work in researching and creating the June 6 event “Building on the foundation of Christ-healing: From the Collections at The Mary Baker Eddy Library.”
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.
This program explored ways that Mary Baker Eddy’s views and practices relate to the unfolding story of how culture, commerce, religion, and tradition intersect during the holiday season.
From origins as a local newspaper to its development into a global thought leader — a look at the history and horizons of a unique influence in journalism.
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.
