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.

Like most genius of the time they were cut down by those held in fear by faith but the author has done a fantastic effort in bringing legendary woman out of history even some believe Hypatia was a grandmaster of the Pythagorean Illuminati

By GeoScientist - Published on Amazon.com

This like many biographical subjects from ancient time periods was I'm sure hard to piece together. I think that F.L. Justice did "justice" to the subject by piecing together an extremely tattered and disconnected history of Hypathia. People, from any time period, have show the ability to be creative and embellish histories or events. We can never be sure what transpired in her life fully simply because we are trapped in the present with no real ability to look back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed the first few pages I've read so far 4 November 2015
By Gerald L. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The book arrived timely and as described. Enjoyed the first few pages I've read so far. I would say the text is well written. I recommend the book to all those interested in the late third and early fourth century Alexandria, Egypt, and to those who simply enjoy the occasional trip to the past. Thank you, Gerald

1.0 out of 5 stars Total waste of money 12 May 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This was a real disappointment. The work comprises mainly blogs previously published by the author. It is consistently repetitive, poorly referenced, and provides very little original insight into the topic indicated by the title. Also, one does not buy such a product in order to read all about the author's personal journey. A total waste of money.
