Art and Music Links For 02/20/2012

Hypatia
Hypatia (ca. AD 350–370–March 415) was a "Greek Neoplatonist philosopher in Roman Egypt who was the first notable woman in mathematics. As head of the Platonist school at Alexandria, she also taught philosophy and astronomy."  She was "murdered by a Christian mob which accused her of causing religious turmoil". 

I read about Hypatia in "The Swerve - How the world became modern" a book by Stephen Greenblatt.  In the book, he says that the Christian patriarch Cyril wanted to expel all the Jews from Alexandria and that Hypatia among others refused to go along with Cyril's plan.
