Emma Curtis Hopkins
Teacher of Teachers
September 2, 1849 - April 8, 1925
Emma Curtis Hopkins, the author of Scientific Christian Mental Practice and High Mysticism was a student of Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science who started her own school and she is frequently referred to as the “teacher of teachers” in the New Thought movement.
Among her students were many who later became prominent teachers and leaders within the New Thought movement, including Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, founders of the Unity, H. Emilie Cady, author of the Unity textbook, Lessons in Truth, as well as Frances Lord, Annie Rix-Militz, George Edwin, Malinda E. Cramer, founder of Divine Science, Ella Wheeler Wilcox (New Thought poetess), Elizabeth Town. Considerably later she worked with Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science and H. B. Jeffery, who worked with her in developing High Mysticism and lectured on her writings for many years after her transition in 1925.
The Divine Science Ministers Association acknowledges the Truth and Light in all and we give thanks to our Father-Mother God for the light that shined so brightly through Emma Curtis Hopkins.
