Greek Neoplatonist philosopher
Hypatia (c. 370– 415) was a Hellenistic Neoplatonist philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician, who lived in Alexandria, Egypt, then part of the Eastern Roman Empire. She was a prominent thinker of the Neoplatonic school in Alexandria where she taught philosophy and astronomy. She is the first female mathematician whose life is reasonably well recorded.
- Hypatia was a University lecturer denounced by Church dignitaries and torn to pieces by Christians. Such will probably be the fate of this book: therefore it bears her name. What I have written here I believe and shall not retract or change for similar expiscopal denunciations.
- Dora Russell, quoted in preface of "Hypatia Or Woman And Knowledge" (1925)
- In speech articulate and logical, in her actions prudent and public-spirited. The city gave her suitable welcome and accorded her special respect.
