"The School of Athens" depicting the philosophers of the Classic period. The sad-looking female figure under 'Free' in Free Expression is said to depict the scientist and mathematician Hypatia, whose murder by Christian mobs marked the beginning of a 1,000 year intellectual Dark Age. http://www.newbanner.com/AboutPic/athena/raphael/nbi_hypa.html Much of our modern thinking is derived from this pre-Christian era as the power of the Catholic Church waned during the Reformation and the works of ancient philosophers began to be extended upon during the Enlightenment. The society we live in is now based more on the ideas of the Enlightenment than from the Christian Dark Ages. The church has resisted this all the way to the modern age. This the long and proud heritage of Humanism.
