|Mary Baker Eddy
1821 - 1910
She was one of
the most influential women in American history, establishing the Church
of Christian Science, a new religion recognizing men and women as spiritual
equals.She established a theological college, and began addressing concepts
of mind/body integration generations before its acceptance. Her spiritual
writings continue to be popular, and her Church's newspaper remains a national
and international source of objective journalism.
Time magazine named her the most influential woman of the 19th century,
and Susan B. Anthony observed in her time, "And what of Mrs. Eddy? No man
ever obtained so large a following in so short a time."
