Connecting people with ideas
Human Ties
Join us on Friday, June 4 at 5:00 pm when Dr. Nicole Ruane (UNH) will discuss Mary Baker Eddy, New Hampshire's most important and innovative religious thinker. Mark Twain called Eddy "the most interesting woman that ever lived, and the most extraordinary." 
Eddy’s church, The Church of Christ, Scientist, profoundly influenced American religious thought and public opinion about women’s roles in society. This program discusses the ways in which Eddy's experience as a woman in Victorian-era America influenced her gendered understanding of God; the nature of humanity, the body, and health; and the place of women in powerful organizations. Join us on Zoom for this free, online presentation!
