Charles Kingsley
$20.00

Illustrated by Edmund H. Garrett

Hypatia, or New Foes with an Old Face is an 1853 novel by English writer Kingsley. It is a fictionalised account of the life of the philosopher Hypatia, and tells the story of a young monk called Philammon who travels to Alexandria, where he becomes mixed up in the political and religious battles of the day. Intended as Christian apologia, it reflects typical 19th-century religious sentiments of the day. For many years the book was considered one of Kingsley’s best novels and was widely read.
