About the Book

"Hypatia or New Foes with an Old Face" is a historical novel written by Charles Kingsley. The novel is set in 5th-century Alexandria and is loosely based on the life of the philosopher Hypatia. The story follows the lives of several characters, including Hypatia, a pagan philosopher; Cyril, the Bishop of Alexandria; and Raphael Aben-Ezra, a Jewish merchant. The novel explores the conflict between paganism and Christianity in ancient Alexandria and the tensions that arise as the two religions clash. The characters are complex, and their actions are shaped by their beliefs and their desire to protect their own interests. As the story unfolds, the city of Alexandria is torn apart by religious and political tensions. Hypatia, who is a respected and influential philosopher, becomes a target of the Christian zealous who see her as a threat to their faith. Meanwhile, Raphael Aben-Ezra, who is a successful merchant, becomes embroiled in the conflict as he tries to protect his family and his business.
