Hypatia of Alexandria

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

As the western world fell into darkness, she dared defend the light.

Born in 355 CE in the aftermath of Constantine's reign, Hypatia of Alexandria lived in a collapsing Roman Empire, a world where obedience to religious authorities trumped science, where reason and logic threatened the new world order. It was a world on the edge of the Dark Ages, a world deciding the question of science verses religion, freedom verses orthodoxy, tolerance verses hate.

For over 40 years Hypatia stood between the dark ages and the light of classical philosophy, arts, and sciences. Though none of her books survived the aggressive book burnings of religious zealots, her legacy remains that of one of the greatest scientists of all time.

This is her fascinating true story.

Includes bibliography, a detailed timeline, and latitude-longitude coordinates for major Roman Empire cities so you can explore the wonders of the heavens with Hypatia.
