Hypatia – Inspiring courage and strength in uncertain times

Free Online Talk

Hypatia inspired with the beauty of her mind as much as with the beauty of her character. This extraordinary woman was a renowned philosopher, the leader of the Neoplatonic school of philosophy, recognised mathematician and highly talented astronomer.

She lived in the city of Alexandria, a dream made reality, with its living example of universal values like tolerance and solidarity. Faced with the collapse of this society, she remained loyal to the ideal of a better future for all, irrespective of any differences.

This talk will explore what we can learn from her wisdom and legacy for our times.
