There's supposed to be a movie released this year about Katherine of Alexandria too. In fact, Peter O'Toole is in the movie. It was his last film he made before he died.
History tends to skate over women, my sympathy to anyone born without a Y Chromosone, this world isnt very nice to you...
True. but on a bright note, it's been changing lately and if all of us reasonable people work for it, being born female will no longer be a liability for so many humans across our planet. Eliminating religion completely will be a nice step :-)
Interesting thing about Men vs. Women is that the difference of not having a Y Chromosome is about the same as the difference between Humans and our nearest cousins (Chimps, or Bonobos).
I find this story very interesting, but I still doubt it because ofthe era when it supposed to have happened.
Not exactly. Although the earliest her story was added to the canon was some 500 years after her martyrdom, her relics are buried on Mount Sinai, where a monastery was built from above her grave. Although it is written that it was "angels which brought" her remains to Mount Sinai, that was most likely a mistranslation. It was most likely monks who had brought her remains to Mount Sinai, & wrote down her story on her grave, hence, the rest of world did not hear of her, until coming upon the monastery.
We realize that there is only one book, but we have so many bookshelves to fill won't you please help us fill these shelves!"
