Hypatia; daughter of the mathematician Theon (c. 335-405) last librarian of Alexandria

Hypatia; daughter of the mathematician Theon (c. 335-405) last librarian of Alexandria (in Roman controlled Egypt), who raised her like a boy. Her scientific teaching was perceived as pagan. Hypatia was ambushed and skinned alive by a mob of Christian fanatics. Arguably, her murder marks the beginning of the Dark Ages. Aetheric Dreams
