Overview

From the dawn of history, countless women have marked their times in extraordinary ways. Women have been warriors, Pharaohs, popes, queens and kings, philosophers, poets, mathematicians, composers, painters, writers, revolutionaries and "witches."

But there was only one HYPATIA.

Brilliant, beautiful, accomplished and free, Hypatia of Alexandria was the last of the great Pagan teachers. Her brutal death at the hands of a Christian mob foretold the death of reason, of questioning, of reverence for nature, of the Goddess herself.

Following her acclaimed novel "The Secret Magdalene," Ki Longfellow now offers a stunning portrait of the life and death of Hypatia of Alexandria.

Editorial Reviews

Michelle Moran
She has a very special bond with her subjects, almost as if she calls them back from the dead to hear and write their stories...the words are so precise and so vivid.
Nancy Savoca
Put down the book and was shocked to find myself at home--so magical to be transported back to hear, see, feel, taste and smell Alexandria as if I were there. Beautifully orchestrated. Had me on the edge of my seat.
Margaret George
A feast for the spirit and the mind, set in the dying flames of the ancient world.

    I bought this book for my Nook and I loved it.  It is a rich and wonderful story about a true heroine of history.
    Hypatia is a woman who actually existed in Alexandria, Egypt, in 4th century C.E. She is famous in history as a
    a mathematician and philosopher.  Historians have traditionally marked her death at the hands of a Christian
    mob as the beginning of the dark ages.  Her father, Theon of Alexandria is also famous in history and was the
    head of the Library of Alexandria, which was burned by a Christian mob.   All this is told in this thrilling account of this extraordinary woman.  I don't know what the another reviewer says the book is "the wong book."  Weird.

    This book broke my heart.  I'd read Longfellow's The Secret Magdalene and didn't think she could ever write something as wonderful.  But she could.  Flow Down Like Silver is historical fiction, meaning Longfellow wrote of a real woman about whom little is known.  The little is enough for an amazing book of incredible richness.  I was enthralled.  I couldn't do anything but read it.  At work, all I wanted was to get back to it.  The history of Hypatia's world is here.  The splitting of the Roman Empire into two empires, the creation of the Christian Church, the beginning of bishops and popes (every large city had a pope) and the slow death of a world of magic and mysticism, of philosophy and questioning.  The iron fist of dogma took control of Hypatia's life.  Her life should be know to everyone.  A genius, a woman who questioned everything, a philosopher and a mathematician famous all over the Roman Empire, beacon of reason in a darkening world, a fair voice in a world of shrill righteousness, a beauty standing alone against a Terrified New World.  And the ending.  I didn't think I could bear it.  That's when my heart got broken.  The end of a life and the end of a book I loved.
