Hypatia Philosopher, mathematician of the Stars

Hypatia of Alexandria died in 415AD. She was considered the first notable woman educator in math,  philosophy and astronomy. She taught many of the powerful young men of those times but in the end her pagan background and rooted scientific mind was brutally killed by the Christians who feared she was causing religious turmoil. This was back in the time of Roman occupied Egypt and the Great Alexandrian Library. Her father was the mathematician there. Great movie to see about her life is called "Agora". (It's on Netflix)

Sansaria will have to go there won't she. I figure she must go and warn Hypatia to hide her scrolls so the won't burn and the rest of time could prosper from her wisdom. I'm thinking pivital point in women history....I'm thinking another art journal page for my spring break.
