Brilliant second in series

door Shaggybag (Gepubliceerd door gebruiker WorldCat 2009-09-10) Uitstekend Permalink

After I read The Secret Magdalene by this author, I could not wait to read her next book, also a work with the search for eternal meaning at its core.  This one concerns Hypatia of Alexandria, one of the world's brilliant forgotten women.  Hypatia was a mathematician, a philosopher (the...
