Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio - Hypatia of Alexandra - (thanks Abraxas!)
February 13 & February 14: Perhaps the last and greatest symbol of all that was bright and wise in the Classic Greco/Roman Era is Hypatia of Alexandria. Not only did Hypatia break so many molds by being a renowned scholar in a civilization where women held few rights, she was admired across the Roman Empire by Pagans, Jews and Christians, sought after by nobles and wisemen of all stripes. A woman of famed beauty and alluring mystique, she was also an unparalleled, mathematician, astronomer, alchemist and philosopher. We explore Hypatia's remarkable life, from the known history to the mythology surrounding her, including her tragic murder that represents the beginning of the Dark Ages and the ultimate victory for Orthodoxy. Is Hypatia a martyr for those seeking freedom and equality, a heroine to freethinkers standing against the agents of intolerance, a Gnostic Saint, or another incarnation of the Divine Feminine Principle? We also present a snapshot of the grim backdrop of her story in a world where the ancient Pagan ways and the rise of Christianity clashed with terrible results that stunted history forever.
