3023A Review of Agora from Le Monde
- Feb 4 10:26 AMThe new film about Hypatia, Agora, is being shown at least in France now. Here is a review from LeMonde. Regardless of the quality of the plot - apparently it has Hypatia having discovered the elliptical orbits of the planets before succumbing to the mob! - I am most curious to see it. From the review at least it appears a main them is the conflict between science and religion.
And how often do we see Synesius cited in the review of any film?
Perhaps someone in the group from France will get to see this. I would be curious just to see the recreation of Alexandria in it, especially the temple of Serapis.
