Hypatia of Alexandria (Revealing Antiquity , No 8) - Maria Dzielska


'The survey is divided into three sections: The Literary Legend of Hypatia, Hypatia and her Circle, and The Life and Death of Hypatia. (...) This book is a splendid corrective to the myths about Hypatia and deserves to be read by anyone studying ancient gender or her time period. It joins an increasing number of books which aim to deconstruct received images of ancient women. (...) Thanks to D. we can now distinguish and appreciate appearance and reality in the story of this influential, if enigmatic philosopher.' (RICHARD HAWLEY in The Classical Review (New Series, 1996, pp.119-120).
