AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Hypatia (c365-415 CE) was the foremost mathematical authority of her time, an exponent of Platonist philosophy, and as such, a pagan woman on the incipient Christian culture of Egypt. The Life of Hypatia follows her struggles to protect the famous library of Alexandria - the Roman Empire's greatest repository of knowledge - as well as her integrity, in a city where multiple ethnicities, religious and economic interests vie for power in the shadow of a rapidly changing Europe.
