Title: The Real Story of Hypatia and the Destruction of the Library of Alexandria

Description: Today Steve is joined by Jonathan Adly, host of the History of the Copts Podcast and Coptic Voices to talk about the complex background and context surrounding the end of antiquity in Roman Egypt. Alexandria was a place of Greco-Roman learning and education, but it was also the home of the native Coptic people who were early adopters of Christianity. Roman Alexandria during late antiquity was a place where Christianity and Greco-Roman Platonic philosophy interacted. Sometimes these interactions were peaceful and sometimes in quarrelsome Alexandria, not so peaceful. Let’s find out how and why!
