Historical Christian Science Lectures
We are pleased to offer audio recordings of historical Christian Science lectures. During the 1960’s, Christian Science lectures were frequently broadcast in the New York City area.
Many of them were recorded by the webmaster of this site on reel-to-reel tape, which you may now enjoy. Visitors to our site have also contributed many additional lectures.
We have recently completed a project which added 212 new lectures. This gives a total of 312 you may listen to. This was made possible due to the generosity of people who have donated to this website.
All of the new lectures are synthesized, meaning they were converted from text to speech. But, they use a natural sounding voice and are a vast improvement over those previously used on this site. Play the small sample below to hear the difference.
If you scroll down you will see several tabs. The HUMAN tabs use the voice of the actual lecturer, or a human speaker. The SYNTH tabs are the newly added lectures. Click on the tab you want. Read the little introduction after clicking the Synth A-G tab for some useful information.
We have also added links for the full text of each synthesized lecture. You can click the little book icon and read along while you listen to the lecture! In case you are interested, one lecture is the first that was given in the Original Edifice of the Mother Church. This lecture is “Tomlinson, Irving C. – CS What It Is and What It Is Not 1898” and you will find it in the last tab. Your feedback is welcome.
Click the play button to listen to a 15 second intro using the old voice, followed by the new one.
You may download and listen to these recordings for your own personal use only. You are not permitted to copy/upload the lectures to your website or any other website, sell them, use them for commercial purposes, or reproduce and distribute them without permission in any form whatsoever.
If you are enjoying the lectures, a donation to help support this website would be appreciated. Just click the button, then you may use either your credit card, or PayPal.
