Hypatia Portrait

Hypatia was born in 370 AD in the lost prosperous city of Egypt, Alexandria. She is the first woman to be recorded on the front page of history. She has played an important role in developing of the mathematical astronomy and philosophy which was uncommon in her time.

Hypatia was the daughter of Theon, the teacher and later the director of the Library in Alexandria, which was the center of the largest gatherings of people with knowledge in the glorious Egypt. In addition to her brilliant brain, she was a promoter of learning since childhood and advocate of women.

Hypatia’s father, Theon was also regarded as a thinker,  an important mathematician of that time . He has written many articles and research papers. When Hypatia was younger, she went to study in Athens and Italy, since the schools there were very popular in the field science. After that she returned again to Egypt, she was appointed the administrator of the Neo Platonism Institute, which was one of the most famous educational institutions at that time. She promoted  thinking and development, she was a famous teacher, often referred to as the “headmaster”. The students believed in her, respected her, she was also an influential thinker of young people.

Most of Hypatia’s teachings in mathematics, astronomy, mechanics, philosophy, were influenced by Plato’s and Aristotle’s ideas. She tried to spread the concept of  what is called “science”, which was very different from other schools at the time, who focused on teaching miracles, sacrifice to Gods or mysterious things that could not be proven. This is a hypothetical issue entirely, Hypatia did not believe in miracles.

 

“It matters little whether men or women have  more brain; all we women need to do is just to exert our proper influence  to use all the brains we have.”

 

In addition to being a  teacher, Hypatia was also an inventor, even though later, her documents and accessories were lost, it was   enough to have a marked place for herself in the history books. Hypatia constructed astrolabes and hydrometers and people named after her an asteroid discovered in 1884, for her work and studies about the Sun and Earth relationships.

Her knowledge and teachings  caused problems because of the rapid expansion of Christianity, when religious conflicts started to rise between Pagans, Christians and Jews.  In the past, science has not been open and it was only Hypatia challenging Christ. Hypatia was seen as a heretic, especially in AD 412, after Cyril an influential preacher came to power as the bishop of Alexandria.

Besides evangelism, Cyril was actively engaged in a battle of ideas, and saw Hypatia as an obstacle and the problem of the decline of the Church in Alexandria. Cyril had an ongoing feud with Orestes, the Roman prefect of Alexandria who was a good friend of Hypatia. Although she was well respected among Christians and Pagans as a wise counsel, rumors started to spread accusing  her of preventing the reconciliation between Cyril and Orestes.

In the aftermath of the conflict, the tension between the Church and the rulers finally reached a boiling point, and the one who had been sacrificed to divisiveness was the women with great imagination, Hypatia. She was  by a crowd instigated by Cyril who stated that she was a witch. Hypatia was stripped before being dragged along the streets to a church and brutally murdered. Her body was burned along with all her studies, books and other works of her life.

The murder of Hypatia

 

After the death of Hypatia many letters on her behalf were sent out to attack the Church radically, and accused the person responsible for her death, Cyril.

But it doesn’t matter  who killed her, who were the people to follow the authority order and brutally murder her, Hypatia was a victim of different beliefs. And if we looking back,  Hypatia is the one of the greatest and most remarkable women in history. As a woman to rise up to the knowledge of the woman and become a teacher it was outstanding to accomplish. There were many students at that time who could not rise as high as her and other women were still housewives. She was a women who stood firm in true faith and later she was  accepted as a scientist, the first female mathematician in the history of the world.

 

Hypatia reiterated that’s a myths or miracles  must be taught clearly t only as fairy tales or imagination. She firmly believed that  taking the supernatural and to cultivate it as the truth it is the worst thing in academia. Hypatia was always trying to teach that people should not be restricted thinking with unforgettable beliefs.

 

“We should have the right to think, even  wrong thinking is better than not thinking at all.”

 

Even if the death of Hypatia was very unfortunate, it was considered the  beginning or a significant starting point for science. And those who love the truth still remember her.

In 2008 there was a film released named Agora, an English-Spanish historical drama which presented the life of Hypatia,  the woman who stood in the truth, sacrificing even her own life.
