Hypatia of Alexandria: Mathematician and Martyr 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Unlike so many 'histories' of Hypatia, this one reviews the known facts, without any romanticizing or ideological objective. For anyone interested in scholarly research, Deakin's work makes an ideal reference and source-guide - many of the sources are translated in English in the appendices. For anyone interested in a factual account of one of humanities true greats, this is very readable.
