Description
Hypatia grew up on the northern tip of Egypt in the city of Alexandria in the fourth century C.E. Tutored by her father, the mathematician Theon, Hypatia quickly became an authority in the subjects of mathematics, astronomy, and philosophy. Word spread of her brilliance, and scholars from all over the world journeyed to Alexandria to seek her teachings.
