Not our Hypatia (though she occasionally needs a little rounding up, generally when she's slithering into oblivion inside the furniture). Rather the one being portrayed in Agora, which, even if it may not see widespread theatrical release, will probably come to Santa Fe and Netflix eventually. The movie's now out there, and the web is rife with Hypatia-blogging. Here are a few perspectives:
- The Good, the Bad and the Silly: A review of the movie from a historical-accuracy perspective.
- The Perniciously Persistent Myths of Hypatia and the Great Library: A debunker's take.
- Agora: the “Reel” vs. the “Real”: A historical novelist's thoughts.
- A giant discussion of the history surrounding Hypatia: Bloody good, but many, many words.
