The Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston is now accepting online applications for our Summer 2018 Research Fellowships. The fellowship program is open to academic scholars, independent researchers, and graduate students. The Library’s collections, centered on the papers of Mary Baker Eddy and records documenting the history of Christian Science, offer scholars countless opportunities for original research. A select list of such resources includes: Eddy’s correspondence and manuscript material, scrapbooks, and copybooks; a fully-indexed file of newspapers clippings that date to the late nineteenth century; an extensive historic photograph collection; a collection of more than 460 historic Bibles, Bible reference, devotional, and related books; architectural records; early histories of branch Churches of Christ, Scientist; and the publication records for The Christian Science Monitor, Eddy's books, and church magazines. Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) authored a groundbreaking book on science, theology, and healing titled Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, a publishing society, and The Christian Science Monitor.
