The Divine Comedy: Inferno, Purgatory, and ParadiseAuthor: Dante Alighieri E-book
The medieval classic that takes readers on a guided tour of the afterlife and on a spiritual journey toward God.
Written in the fourteenth century, this epic poem continues to entrance readers as it explores the nine circles of hell, the mountain of purgatory, and the spheres of heaven, detailing those who inhabit each and the sins and virtues that led them there.
This masterpiece is a work of literature, history, psychology, and philosophy—and a deeply insightful exploration of Christian theology that, in painting a picture of the afterlife, allows us to reflect on earthly life as well.
