A fictionalised account of the life of the Greek scholar Hypatia.
TO MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER
MY DEAR PARENTS:

WHEN you shall have read this book, and considered the view of human relationships which is set forth in it, you will be at no loss to discover why I have dedicated it to you, as one paltry witness of an union and of a debt which, though they may seem to have begun with birth, and to have grown with your most loving education, yet cannot die with death : but are spiritual, indefeasible, eternal in the heavens with that God from whom every fatherhood in heaven and earth is named.
