Regarding Hypatia and the movie Agora, you need to realize that it's just a movie and is not entirely accurate.   :)

She wasn't sentenced to death, she was killed by a mob of zealots who hated her perceived alliance with an opposing political figure.

Also, check out the following article:

Quote from: Pope Francis
Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as 'Animal politicus.' So at least I am a human person.
