Hypatia: The Movie

Hypatia Comes to the Screen

Article over by Jason over at Wild Hunt about the upcoming movie about the female philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria:

...This film, more than any other recent film set during the classical period, will be closely watched by modern Pagans (especially Hellenic reconstructionists). Many of whom consider Hypatia to be one of the primary martyrs of pre-Christian pagan religion...

Many of us were first enlightened about Hypatia by Carl Sagan in his series Cosmos. The movie is being handled by a good director who is passionate about the material, so there's a good chance this will turn out well.

Thanx Rigina and Riverwolf. Looking forward to the film, as well. I first blogged about Hypatia for the Sagan Blog-a-thon.
