The original title of the book: Hypatia of Alexandria: Mathematician and Martyr
This is the first biography of Hypatia to integrate all aspects of her life. Mathematician Michael Deakin emphasizes that, though she was a philosopher, she was first and foremost a mathematician and astronomer of great accomplishment. In a fascinating narrative that brings to life a richly diverse ancient society, he describes her work so that the mathematics, presented in straightforward terms, finds its true place in the context of her life as a whole. Deakin supplies full detail on the historical, intellectual, and religious context of Hypatia s times. He also analyzes the pattern of her life and thought, and finally gives an account of the events leading up to her lynch-mob execution.
Although this outrageous crime has made Hypatia a powerful symbol of intellectual freedom and feminist aspiration to this day, Deakin makes clear that the important intellectual contributions of her life s work should not be overshadowed by her tragic death.
Michael A. B. Deakin (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) is an honorary research fellow and formerly a senior lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences of Monash University.
