About the Book

In this historical essay, freelance writer Gerald Everett Jones correlates the few details known about the death of the last Greek-speaking philosopher with the religious and political revolution that overtook her. Jones explains how, centuries earlier, Egyptian priest Manetho and Greek mystic Timotheus created the cult of Sarapis at the behest of pharaoh Ptolemy Soter. Hypatia’s identification with this religion got her killed and her works suppressed, but the philosophy today’s scholars call Hellenic Neoplatonism was rediscovered in the Renaissance and then again in the New Age.
