This session covered Dante’s Purgatorio, Cantos X-XII, examining the sin of pride and proposing remedies to do battle with this devastating sin
We enter the second phase of our journey through the afterlife as we begin Dante’s Purgatorio. We will be considering Cantos I-VII, much of which is dedicated to considering those souls who just make it to salvation, whom Dante calls “the Late-Repentant.”
In this session, we complete our journey through Dante’s Inferno, looking specifically at Cantos XVIII, XX, and XXIII-XXVIII. Imagining the darkest paces in hell, Dante will compel us to consider sins of deceit, disloyalty, betrayal, deceit, and treachery. Our journey concludes with the encounter with Lucifer himself in the deepest circle of hell.
