Hypatia (ca. 350-415) was the daughter of a scholar in Alexandria. She became an outstanding mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher. Her circle of followers included church leaders and politicians; Hypatia was a pagan, but she taught Christians and pagans alike. She became a target, and was murdered by a street mob. Her commentaries on mathematics and astronomy survive, and the Neoplatonic philosophy that she taught helped shape the developing Christian doctrine of the Trinity.
