Added DiffLines:

* 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.

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

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

* ForeignLookingFont: On the posters, the pseudo-Greek font uses Lambdas in place of Latin alphabet 'A's or Alphas in Greek meaning that if we ignore the fact that a Latin alphabet 'R' is used in place of the correct Greek Rho (which looks like a 'P') and that a Latin 'G' is used in place of a Greek Gamma then the film's title reads; LGORL.
* GoodColorsEvilColors: The Christians and Jews dress mostly in black or grey (with some clerical orders using white) while pagans use white. Fun fact: '''none are truly good'''; in fact, the only color associated with good is red, which is both used by the Roman army and Hypatia herself after Alexandria's library's demise. Justified because its historically accurate.
