"Agora" film staring Rachel Weisz as Hypaita

It is well known that the destruction of the library of Alexandria has probably been the greatest loss go knowledge in all of human history, yet the story of Hypatia one of the last tutors and great thinkers of the libraries long history is not well known  . Her story starts at the very last chapter of the great library which is also the last chapter in the ancient world. The films plot mainly tracks the main events in her life including her achievements in mathematics astronomy and other sciences. She finds herself at the center of the politics of the day sense the new roman pegan governor was a student go hers. She eventually finds herself being torn apart by a christian mob scrolls from the library in hand. I think her fall is the perfect reflection to such a loss in intellectual culture. The destruction of all that paper brings with it the anilation of all intellectual culture in the ancient world for centuries.

The death of Hypatia

The story goes that Hypatia with scrolls in toe running through he library to collect the most important books was on her way out of the library were she had mounted her chariot and just as she began to ride away. The mob of christians pulled her down and proceeded to use razor clams to flay her alive. The event only further angers me when I think bout the fact that those same murderious christians belied that Hypatia would burn for the rest of all time in the pits of hell. Such events remind me of my oftentimes fervent disgust for religion especially christianity.

The elven crown of Arwen is such a point of inspiration as its art nouveauesque aesthetic is a perfect relationship between flat surfaces and the thin line of wire. Both motifs weaving in and out of each other.
