Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The Serapeum was on the top of a hill. According to certain authors it contained only a part of the works of the Great Library after its fire occurred centuries before. There were then two libraries and the Great Library was in fact on the other side of the Rhakotis quarter, more or less in front of the Island of Pharus.
  • There were days when shooting had to delay for a few seconds. This was because of the nearby churches of Kalkara, Vittoriosa amongst others which have their bells obviously ringing at mid-noon. These bells have been in use for decades. The bells could be heard from the sets of Ricasoli.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Although the film explicitly refers to Hypatia as an atheist on a number of occasions, she was in fact a pagan.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Hypatia was born between 350 C.E. and 370 C.E. and was murdered in 415 C.E. She was between 45 and 65 years old when she died.
