We continue our tour through Dante’s Inferno by examining the levels of hell reserved to sins of violence. Specifically, we discuss Cantos IX-XV.
This session is a whirlwind tour through Dante’s whirlwind of the sins of the flesh. We’ll meet the Hoarders and the Wasters, the Gluttons, the Wrathful and the Sullen, and, of course, poor, pathetic, lustful Francesca and Paolo.
The St. Stephen’s Mystagogy Program begins the third part in our five part series, a ten-week tour through Dante’s epic spiritual poem, The Divine Comedy. An imaginative vision of hell, purgatory, and heaven, this ranks with the greatest narrative works ever written.
