    Thanks for the link. I am adding Invocatio to my blogroll.

    Sadly Agora, appears to have had very little to do with Hypatia, so stick with your math.
    (Sorry I have a math credential and love Hypatia.)

      Hey Cat!

      Did you mean it has little to do with Hypatia, or that it is not entirely based on history?

      I know the movie came under some criticism for playing loose with the evidence, but when I saw it, it was all about Hypatia. (And I cried! I’m such a suck!)

    Well it was definitely playing loose with the evidence of the historical Hypatia. Guesstory would have had to be used to produce a film of such length based on the evidence we have, but even so, they guessed big time. I also detest computer generated graphics in films, they look ugly and clumsy to those of us who do not play computer games.

    Exceed in subtlety.
