Abstract: The Manin-Mumford conjecture in characteristic zero was first proved by Raynaud. Later, Hrushovski gave a different proof using model theory. His main result from model theory, when applied to abelian varieties, can be rephrased in terms of algebraic geometry. We show how to prove that intervening result using classical algebraic geometry alone. Altogether, this yields a new proof of the Manin-Mumford conjecture using only classical algebraic geometry.
