* TheDogBitesBack: Hypatia calls Davus an "idiot" while packing. This drives him to participate in the sacking of the library, and he [[spoiler: is only barely able to restrain himself from sexually assaulting her when next they meet]].

* BlackAndBlackMorality: Neither the Christians, nor the Romans, nor the Jews are portrayed in what could be described a positive way - they all are equally violent, ignorant and bent on provocation and escalation.

* CycleOfRevenge: What begins with a couple of public speeches and marketplace debates between dissenting religious groups soon spirals into attacks and acts of public humiliation. Those soon culminate in fully-fledged riots and progroms, usually in direct retaliation.

* HollywoodHistory: There was no second Great Library, Hypatia was killed because she was a supporter of a rival politician instead of for religious reasons, and her side wasn't nearly so blameless, either. But there ''was'' a Serapeum in which was housed an academy (and it is mentioned that the great library burned to the ground, and the Serapeum contains texts rescued from the blaze) and Hypatia's death was engineered by someone with political motives but carried out by people with a religious axe to grind. Whether the Serapeum actually carried any rescued books is highly questionable though, as contemporary evidence suggests [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Alexandria#Attack_of_Aurelian.2C_3rd_century the collection was considered a thing of the past by 378 C.E.]] and Socretes, no enemy of knowledge, only mentioned religious artifacts being destroyed by the Christians, not books. Hypatia was actually well-respected by everyone in the community, including Christians, and pretty much everyone was horrified by the news of her death.

* AllJewsAreAshkenazi: Probably the main fault of the movie was to portray Jews as Caucasian.


Added DiffLines:

* RaceLift: Probably one of the biggest mistakes of the movie is portraying all Jews as white. Although Christianity encouraged conversion and gained a number of followers from all religions, Jews at this point were still a small ethnoreligious group from the Levant.

* BarefootSage: [[PlayedWith Played with]]; Hypatia isn't always barefoot, but she seems to have a habit of taking off her footwear when indoors (in particular, teaching her students this way).
