I found the most wonderful woman Hypathia, daughter of Theon of Alexandria from 351-415 AD. She was one of the great mathematicians, philosophers, and astronomers of her time. She welcomed the Christians into her school, and was respected by all. Her students became the great leaders, generals and bishops of the time. Students came from all over the world to learn from her in Alexandria. She lived as a virgin and had no children.
Hypathia was the first woman killed as a "witch" by the Christians zealots. Her death in Alexandria is considered the end of the Classical Era and the marker of the beginning of the Dark Ages. Her work in Mathematics is respected in History.
She had no children, thus there is no one to do her work or her father's work. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypatia
How do I ensure that her work is done. Although she was Pagan she worshiped no gods but worked to demonstrate the relationships between science and religion. She worked to bring people of various faiths together in mutual respect, and died for it.
Her portrait is included in the "School of Athens" painting by Raphael in the Vatican. She's the woman in white looking out at you.
Hypatia is stinking awesome. I found her by accident. I bought a painting and was struck by the woman in the painting of great men.
Hi thank you for telling us about this lady, she truly was remarkable. A lot of the historical figures from history have already had their work done and so to stop duplicating the work guidelines were set in place, so it appears at present since you are not related or connected in any way that she must wait to have the work done a little while longer.0

She is already in Family Tree and all her ordinances were completed in 1994. See: LBJC-CSG Did you not notice this when you were working on her Family Tree record last month?
In fact, she was in Family Tree five times but people have merged all of those together. Her sealing to parents got separated from her parents and that could be fixed by support. I tried to look through the change logs but can't see where that happened.
There probably are very, very few well known, documented, historical figures that are not already in Family Tree.0

The temple ordinances now appear correctly in Family Tree.0
