Mary Baker Eddy


American religious leader, the founder of the First Church of Christ Scientist, 8/23/1879, 17 years after first meeting mesmerist and mental healer Phineas Quimbey. She married Gilbert Eddy in 1876, a ten-year-younger student and her third husband, they had one child. With the precept that matter and death are mental illusions, she wrote "Science and Health" in 1875. Her books and lectures spread the good word to 22,000 members in 420 churches before the turn of the century. By the time of her death, her book "Science and Health" was in its 382nd edition.

Eddy died 12/03/1910, Boston, MA.

Source Notes

Davison quotes a biography by Pakin, AQ Vol 25/4.

Wayne Turner writes: my notes on the Davison source read: Lecture by R. C. Davison, "The Amazing Mrs Eddy" quotes bio by Edwin Franden Dakin (for data?) 10:30 pm GMT, Bow, NH, given 24 September 1951 at the Lodge. Astrology Quarterly, December 1951, v 25 #4, p. 136. The title of Edwin Franden Dakin's biography is Mrs Eddy: The Biography of a Virginal Mind, 1929. I found that some of it could be read online, enough to give the impression that this book was not likely the source of the birth time used by Davison. Scholar K Paul Johnson had access to a copy according to this web post http://www.historyoftheadepts.com/historyoftheadepts/?p=1017 so I emailed him and he graciously looked into his copy and confirmed that Dakin's biography does not include a time of birth—in fact not even a date, just the year.

Sabian Symbols No.308 has 5:33 PM.

The entry has been changed to 'unknown time' with the time used by Davison as rectified/speculative option.
