From the December 1957 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Christians have always admitted the power of God to heal sin, but from about the third century until the present era they have, with a few exceptions, either denied the possibility of the Christian healing of sickness or attempted to use it merely as an adjunct to the current form of materia medica. It remained for Mary Baker Eddy to discover in the latter half of the nineteenth century the underlying Principle which Christ Jesus demonstrated and to give her discovery to the world as Christian Science.
