Items of Interest
Visitors to The Mother Church edifice are naturally interested in the number and the character of the inscriptions on the walls taken from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Branch churches may place on their walls, in addition to Bible citations, only one of the three selected passages from Science and Health which Mrs. Eddy indicated on pages 213 and 214 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany." The Mother Church is unique in that many more selections are used on its walls, and in that they were chosen and arranged by Mrs. Eddy herself. Only in one or two instances did our Leader approve of branch churches using, or select for their use, other citations from Science and Health than those she mentions in Miscellany, but she did not limit branch churches in the number of selections from the Bible which they may inscribe on their walls.
When The Mother Church Extension was built, Mrs. Eddy herself made the choice of mural texts, both from the Scriptures and from the Christian Science textbook. There are nineteen from the Bible and nineteen taken directly from the textbook or based thereon. In the original edifice of The Mother Church, there are six from the Bible and nine from Science and Health. These selections are so grouped as to show that they are correlative. Some of them were with much time and thought especially worded by Mrs. Eddy, as she wrote to The Christian Science Board of Directors, but they are substantially the same as they appear in Science and Health.
