> St. Cyril
There is 1 question in this category.
I watched a movie called Agora. The movie was about the life of Hypatia the philosopher. They said she was killed by the hands of Coptic monks and blamed St. Cyril for the killing. I did some research and apparently many websites connected her murder with St. Cyril. Have you ever read about Hypatia and how she was killed? I am just wondering what the church says about this and what is the truth behind this accusation? I also read that St. Cyril, with the help of those monks, killed Jewish people and drove the rest of the Jews out of Alexandria. Although the story does not make sense because Hypatia was very close to the emperor and it is the same emperor that made St. Cyril the head of the Council of Nicea but I would like to get your opinion on this.
