Product description

Product Description

Who was Hypatia, Lady Philosopher of Alexandria?



A brilliant young woman mathematician and scientist, murdered by a religious mob? An aging academic assassinated by a rival political party? A sorceress who kept the governor and people of Alexandria in thrall through satanic wiles? Did she discover that the earth circled the sun a thousand years before Copernicus or was she merely a gifted geometry teacher?

Hypatia is the subject of much myth-making through the centuries. She’s featured in poetry, plays, novels and movies. This collection of essays pulls back the curtain and lets the reader see the real woman behind the stories. You’ll find Hypatia needs no embellishment to be a heroine.
