Christian Science is a set of beliefs belonging to the metaphysical family of new religious movements. It was developed in the United States by Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910) after she experienced what she said was a miraculous recovery from a fall. She subsequently wrote Science and Health (1875), which argued that sickness is an illusion that can be corrected by faith alone. The book became Christian Science's central text along with the Bible; by April 2001, according to the church, it had sold ten million copies in 16 languages.
