Hypatia is the first known woman mathematician, scientist and philosopher. She was born in Egypt in 370 AD. Unlike most other gifted girls of her time, she was given an education - by her liberal-minded father Theon, a respected mathematician and astronomer at the Alexandria Library (we'd call it a university). And she was able to get a job there teaching mathematics and philosophy. She was a very good lecturer and students came from all over to attend her talks. The fact that she was very pretty certainly didn't keep people away either! Her specialities were esoteric aspects of geometry and algebra, but she was also interested in the practical side of the world, inventing an astrolabe, hygrometer and water distiller amongst others. As a philosopher, her advice was much sought after by the administrators of Alexandria. And the common people - she would often give impromptu lectures in streets to any passer-by who asked her. But her influence and gender made enemies, notably Cyril, the main Christian leader at Constantinople (now Istanbul in Turkey). She was not a Christian, and her friends urged her to leave the increasingly fanatical people of Alexandria. She refused, saying that "even if my life is in danger, what good is a life that one does not live as one chooses?" Tragedy happened in March 415 AD. She was driving her chariot home when she was attacked by a mob that dragged her out and brutally scraped her flesh from her bones with sharp shells. They then cut up her body and burnt it. It is generally (there are exceptions) agreed amongst historians that the mob was of Christian fanatics.

Biographies of Mathematicians-Hypatia
Hypatia was born in A.D. 370. She died either in the year of 415 or 430, depending on what book you read. Her father, Theon, was a mathematician and astronomer. He had told everyone that he could create the perfect human. Not discouraged by Hypatia being born a girl, he continued on with his plan of creating the perfect human. Hetaught her in the subjects of art, literature, science, mathematics, and philosophy. Back when Hypatia was alive, astronomy and astrology were the same thing; also, mathematicswas used mostly for figuring out where a soul that was born under a certain planet would be at a certain time in the future. She was also taught to swim, row, ride horseback, and climb mountains. By the time she was 21, she mastered rhetoric, which is the art of using speech effectively and persuasively. While she was growing up Hypatia spent a lot of time in a place called the Museum in the University of Alexandria. Theon told Hypatia

THEOSOPHY, Vol. 25, No. 5, March, 1937 (Pages 197-207; Size: 31K) (Number 12 of a 29-part series)
THE fourth century was the turning point in the history of the Western world, the period in which Christianity took the form of a strong political organization. Throttling the old religions, sciences and philosophies, "the Church" arose as a temporal power upon their remains. Constantine, the first Christian Emperor, was the son of the Roman Emperor Constantius and of Helena, the daughter of an inn-keeper. He was a pagan by birth, a devotee of the sun-god Apollo, whose altars Constantine covered with votive offerings, and whose image appeared on the coins of the emperor as his "companion and guardian." Constantine's conversion to Christianity, as the result of a psychic vision, is described by Eusebius, who was his close friend and companion as well as his famous biographer. On the night before his final battle with Maxentius, who had denounced him as a usurper to the throne, Constantine appealed to his own god for help. According to Eusebius, While he was praying with fervent entreaty, a most marvelous sign appeared in the heavens, the account of which, related by any other person, would be difficult of belief. But since the victorious Emperor himself declared it to the writer of this history, and confirmed his statement with an oath, who could hesitate to credit it? He said that when the sun was beginning to decline, he saw with his own eyes the trophy of a Cross of blazing light, with this inscription:

Thomas F. Bertonneau

Mount Pleasant MI 48859
Deceit, Desire and the Novel There is no doubt that resentment often finds refuge in moralistic prudery and hypocritical denunciations of those whose real accomplishments one envies. The artist's own resentment, so visible in the Bohemia of Nietzsche's time or in the attitudes of an "antibourgeois" like Flaubert, is transcended in his art, whereas the moralizer creates nothing. But this should only make us all the more respectful of a moral tradition that insists on the right of all to reciprocal relations. *** Resentment may be defined as the scandal of the peripheral self at the centrality of the other which transforms the equality of the original scene of representation into an absolute polarity of significance.

Maria Dzielska, translated by F. Lyra. Harvard University Press, Cambridge 1995. viii+157pp. ISBN 0-674-43775-6 (cloth). $29.95. From: AWM Newsletter, May/June 1996. Reviewed by: Marge Murray, Book Review Editor, Department of Mathematics, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA 24061-0123; email: In March of 1994, the American Mathematical Monthly published an excellent article by Michael Deakin ([1]) dealing with the life and legend, but most importantly with the mathematics, of Hypatia of Alexandria, the first woman mathematician for whom we have documentary evidence. Taken together with Maria Dzielska's new biographical treatment, Hypatia of Alexandria , published this fall by Harvard University Press, it is possible to construct a fairly complete picture of Hypatia: her life and times; her work as a teacher, mathematician, philosopher, and religious and political figure; and the circumstances of her violent death. While Hypatia's murder was the misogynist act of a Christian mob, Dzielska's book makes it clear that it is misleading to portray Hypatia's death as the violent defeat of the female and non-Christian by the male and Christian. Christian men were at least as numerous among the supporters and admirers of Hypatia as among her opponents. It is probably more instructive to draw parallels to life in modern Belfast, Beirut, or even Sarajevo (as Deakin is inclined to do in [1], page 236), than to portray her death as the result of a sharply delineated ideological or religious conflict.

72. Hypatia - A Victim Of Bigotry
hypatia of Alexandria, a woman of learning, murdered because of bigotry.
Home About Us Articles Membership ... Site Map ATHEIST FOUNDATION OF AUSTRALIA INC HYPATIA
Hypatia of Alexandria was the daughter of Theon, himself a mathematician and philosopher of note. Hypatia was a remarkable woman with great intelligence, physical stamina and beauty. Her father gave her a first rate education, not limiting it to just mathematical subjects, but also religion. Theon believed in learning about all religions allowing each person to make their own choices and not have one view thrust upon them. To be forced to hold to another's view is in essence being robbed of your own life.
Hypatia herself says, "Fables should be taught as fables, myths as myths, and miracles as poetic fancies. To teach superstitions as truths is a most terrible thing. The child-mind accepts and believes them, and only through great pain and perhaps tragedy can he be in after-years relieved of them. In fact, men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth - often more so, since a superstition is so intangible you can not get at it to refute it, but truth is a point of view, and so is changeable."
In about 400 AD Hypatia became head of the Plotinus school of Alexandria, where she taught mathematics and philosophy. She wrote three books on science and mathematics and numerous other papers. All of her writings have been lost and it is only through the letters of Synesius of Cyrene, one of her pupils that we know anything of her thoughts.

370-415 C.E. Based on an account recorded in Women in Mathematics by Oser, Lynn M. and published by Cambridge in 1974.
The massive destruction of the contents of the Library of Alexandria by Christians during the reign of Christian Emperor Theodosius in 391 C.E. is only a small part of the suppression and elimination of scientific and historical truth. During these years the writings and works of many remarkable women were destroyed, allowed to be lost, or deliberately eradicated; only hints remain, a verse here, a few sentences there. Most of the works of Hypatia were ravaged as well, but her story lives on. How it must have pained her, 21 years old, watching the destruction of the Great Library, a half million tomes representing the finest minds in the ancient world. Handwritten, these documents were irreplaceable; the knowledge lost, the history destroyed and eliminated, was a devastating setback. It was also precursor to the dark ages, a time when only the church fathers retained knowledge. What audacity the church had, claiming the role of preserver of ancient knowledge when the only knowledge they preserved was that which they chose not to destroy.
And each loss to the world was a personal tragedy ...

Hypatia was a Greek scientist, philosopher, and mathematician who taught at the Mouseion in Alexandria. She was born in 370 AD, and was the daughter of Theon, the last curator of the Mouseion at Alexandria. Her father gave her a classical education; she studied the works of Plato and Diophantine equations. Hypatia was reputedly a beauty and had many suitors, although according to the most reliable sources she never married. The Mouseion where Hypatia taught was a library originally built to rival the library system of Athens . The institution grew, however, and became more of a university than a library. Archimedes invented the 'Archimedes Screw' there in 3 BC.

    Hypatia Sans Pro, my new typeface
    Well, it's finally here. Hypatia Sans Pro, the new typeface I've been working on since 2002, is now available (though not yet at retail). It's a geometric sans serif with humanist tendencies, and capitals based on classical roman proportions. When you register Creative Suite 3 or any of the individual CS3 products, you can get a "registration incentive" at no extra cost, and Hypatia Sans is one of the options. I wrote up a bunch of info and made a lot of graphics for the main Hypatia Sans page , including linked high-res PDFs. Robert Slimbach was kind enough to put together a nice text samples PDF , which I got too late to put on the main Web page - so for now you can only get it here. Do follow the links above for general info on the design - I'm not going to repeat it all here. But I will add some more background and details that might be of interest. Mind you, "done" is a bit of a relative term in this case. You may notice the lack of italics in the registration incentive. The six upright weights of Hypatia Sans are shipping now, but it became apparent last fall that there was no way I could keep up some other critical duties and finish the italics in time to go with Creative Suite 3. So we trimmed back our original plans. The italics will still be added to the family some time later this year, at which point it will be made available as a regular retail typeface.
