MBE Mentioned Them

Inspired by the book, Mary Baker Eddy Mentioned Them, from The Christian Science Publishing Society

Mary Baker Eddy mentioned over 180 individuals in her published writings, many of whom are well known today, and others less so––Ptolemy, Jahr, Polycarp, Louis Agassiz, Florence Nightingale ... and many more! From mathematicians and astronomers to historians and philanthropists, Christian Scientists from a wide range of backgrounds and experience share some historical facts, some thoughts of their own, and of course what Mary Baker Eddy said about these people.
