In 1935 the immaculate 30 foot stained globe, know as the Mapparium, was manifested as an emblem for the Christian Science Monitor for their global impact through their well know international newspaper. Architect, Chester Lindsey Churchill designer of the Mapparium and the neoclassical Christian Science Publishing Hall, also built in 1935. When the Christian Science Publishing Society constructed a new headquarters at the height of the Great Depression, this building housed massive print and bindery equipment. Today this unique and beautiful space celebrates our common heritage, with historic architecture and materials internationally sourced from Portugal, France, Belgium, England, Germany, Italy, Czechoslovakia, and Australia. The Mapparium is constructed of 608 stain glass panels made in England by the Hope Glass Company. Then the Rambusch Glass Company did all the designing and tempering of each panel.
Therefore, The Mary Baker Eddy Library invites you to experience the glorious Mapparium, a beautiful piece of art and history, that will take you back in time before World War II.
