Ernest Holmes is the founder of Religious Science. Holmes studied the writings of Thomas Troward, Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Walker Atkinson, and Christian D. Larson.
After leading small private meetings throughout Los Angeles, in 1916, Ernest Holmes was invited to speak at the Metaphysical Library in Los Angeles. This led to repeat engagements, and a nationwide tour. In 1919 he published his first book, The Creative Mind, and after almost a decade of touring, Holmes committed to remaining in the L.A. area to complete his major work, The Science of Mind. It was published in 1926.
In February 1927, Holmes incorporated the Institute of Religious Science and School of Philosophy, Inc., and later that year he began publishing Science of Mind magazine, which is still in publication today. In 1935 he reincorporated his organization as the Institute of Religious Science and Philosophy, and in 1954 it was reestablished yet again as a religious organization called the Church of Religious Science. Today the organization is known as The Centers For Spiritual Living.
