it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
Hypatia was their Virgin Mary
High Debate their eucharist
Shown buxom, fair and chary
All her charms they would enlist
Woo them with a strange cartoon
Of a woman who was such and such
Whom she was we know not much
But trying to raise her from the tomb
And make witnesses of partial truth
Which becomes a partial lie so soon
Sacrifice comes after ruth --
Laugh and weep, for it is sooth.
