INSIDE SCIENTOLOGY airs Mondays, 8 p.m. ET/PT on Scientology Network.
Set amidst 100 acres of the ancient Ashdown Forest are the roots of a global religion. Welcome to Saint Hill. This legendary Manor House is located at the Prime Meridian, in the medieval town of East Grinstead, England. Over the course of its nearly 300-year history, its owners have included landed gentry, the wife of an American diplomat and an Indian maharajah. Then, in the mid-20th century, Saint Hill became home to Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. Here, he lived, worked and made pivotal breakthroughs in the spiritual technology of Scientology, guiding it from a grass-roots movement to a worldwide religion. The Manor House, restored to its original magnificence, looks exactly as it did when Mr. Hubbard lived there. From a rare Erard grand piano he played to a darkroom where he developed his photographs, the Manor House gives visitors a sense of the many facets of his life. In this episode, viewers are given an intimate tour of the landmark site where the global movement was born.
While Saint Hill Manor preserves the Church’s origins, across the property, a modern-day Castle serves as a 21st-century church. Inspired by an 11th-century Norman fortress, the Saint Hill Castle was conceived and designed by Mr. Hubbard himself to accommodate the ever-growing numbers of people who were coming to Saint Hill to study Scientology.
Today, thousands journey from all corners of the globe to the pastoral English countryside to celebrate the anniversary of the International Association of Scientologists and support the humanitarian works it sponsors. Cameras capture the jubilant event that is infused with the spirit of Mr. Hubbard. Gain insight into the life of the Founder of Scientology, explore the roots of a modern movement and visit a magical setting with Inside Scientology: Saint Hill.
