      I decided to read this short book after hearing an interview with the author on the podcast Science for the People. As a "woman in science" I enjoy reading about the pioneers who came before me and before reading this book I had little knowledge of Hypatia's life beyond the fact she was a mathematician (or a scientist or a philosopher or something) and, of course, her tragic death. Having read the book I don't know much more, but that's certainly not the fault of the author; as she deftly demons [...]

      I'm the author so, of course, will not leave a review or rating. I did want to take some time and use this space to thank all of you who have read the book and supported independent publishing. Hypatia has a special place in my heart. I enjoyed writing about and sharing her life and times with those who might not know much about her. My special thanks to those who share their opinions through reviews and/or ratings, here and elsewhere. It takes time and effort to compose and post a review of eve [...]

      What an amazing lady of her times. I saw the movie/film Agora and had to know more about her.I really appreciated how Faith Justice arranged this book on Hypatia. I was able to follow along almost with her as she studied and research her.As a Historian and lover of Ancient History I found the film on Netflix and watched. I was amazed how this lady was able to do so much in that age. I didn't think many ladies could do that. I had a few questions on a few things. First went to internet and then t [...]

      Let's say you saw Agora and want to know what is fact and what is fiction. Well you are in luck my friend, because I think this is a good beginner's guide to the remarkable Hypatia. Written over a period of several years as well reaserched blog posts, Faith L. Justice decided to to put them together and added an interesting interview she did to promote her historical fiction Selene of Alexandria. Give that that book was created as a way for the author to explore both Hypatia's Alexandria and the [...]

      2.5 starsOverall this is a good book that does a nice job of summarizing Hypatia's life and attempting to separate myth from reality, but it's also quite repetitive (mostly because it comprises a series of essays originally published on the writer's blog).

    6. Josh says:

      As this slim volume makes clear from the outset, we possess very few records of Hypatia of Alexandria apart from a handful of documents penned by her contemporaries. This serves to both frustrate those like me who would love to read a more complete account while also deepening the mystery surrounding this Neoplatonist philosopher and mathematician. Was she a beautiful young symbol of virtue and wisdom cut down in her prime? Was she an inventor? Did her death kick off the Dark Ages? While somewha [...]

      A collection of 'essays' (actually blog posts the author wrote over the years) about Hypatia of Alexandria. Because the chapters were written over several years, they are a bit repetitive, but it's forgivable considering how they came together. The subject makes up for a lot, anyway. Like so many people I got interested in Hypatia after seeing the movie Agora, and this book certainly quenched my thirst for more - while simultaneously making me even more intrigued! This is not going to be the las [...]

      A good collection of blog articles on Hypatia's life.

    10. Evamaria says:

      A collection of blog posts which gives a nice overview of Hypatia, the myths surrounding her and the (few) facts we really know. A good intro if you're interested in her.
