Christian Science, officially called the Church of Christ, Scientist, is a religion that emphasizes physical healing through prayer and a recognition of the nonexistence of matter and illness. It was founded in the late 19th century by Mary Baker Eddy.

Christian Science should not be confused with Scientology. Despite a somewhat similar name, the two groups are completely different and have almost nothing in common.

Christian Science is perhaps best known for its news organization The Christian Science Monitor, which was founded in 1908 by Mary Baker Eddy, and its Christian Science Reading Rooms.
