Suppressed Histories Archives
Just talking with someone about this movie about Hypatía of Alexandria, so reposting my review. “I won’t lie: we have gotten so used to seeing hesitant females in film that even a giant like Hypatía cannot be portrayed as a mature woman at the height of her powers, who is accustomed to speaking authoritatively and having men listen to her. I wanted to see the movie show this dimension of her…”

The edicts of Emperor Theodosius I ranted “against the madness of Jewish impiety or the error and insanity of foolish Paganism.” In 388 he ordered temples to be destroyed in Syria, Asia Minor and Egypt… “no one is to go to the sanctuaries, walk in the temples.”
