Christian Science Archive

This is a public archive of primary sources of Christian Science, a practical metaphysic discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. The archive includes the textbooks of Christian Science, which are the King James Bible and Ms. Eddy's Science and Health. It also includes other works by her and by other early workers in the field.

These workers include:

  • Bicknell Young, Ms. Eddy's student and a teacher, nephew of Mormon Brigham Young
  • Gilbert Carpenter, member of Ms. Eddy's household and a teacher
  • Edward Kimball, teacher and lecturer whose teaching Ms. Eddy called "clear and correct"
  • Martha Wilcox, also a member of Ms. Eddy's household and a teacher
  • Adam Dickey, Ms. Eddy's personal secretary
  • Una Willard, teacher and sister of Roy Bedichek, the naturalist

This archive is not affiliated with any church. And neither am I. While anyone is welcome to the works in this archive, my motive for putting them here is to make available the most substantive works to those who wish to demonstrate Christian Science. Ms. Eddy once told a student, "You are alone with your own being and the reality of things." And this is the best standpoint for study.

Regarding Our PDFs

All our files are PDFs and all are verified as complete and non-corrupt. They are easily downloaded and read on desktops, laptops, and netbooks. On mobile devices there are sometimes issues with PDFs. Some devices on some settings will not download a PDF. Some scanned PDFs are so large that they will crash the mobile reader. Early Google Books PDFs were apparently intended to look good in HD and will appear as unreadable but colorful caustic art in some readers.

Viewing PDFs in any browser causes the file to be re-downloaded for each reading. You can access them more quickly and off-line by choosing "Download File" and then using your Kindle, Adobe Reader, iBook, Google Books, or similar, to read your local copy.

NOTE: On all readers and platforms, scanned PDFs can take a while to load. If the PDF loads but appears blank, stop paging around in it and wait. You will find that the next page loads by the time you read the current one.
