Dante’s imaginary journey through the world beyond death is a classic poem which has been read and studied for almost seven hundred years. It is a journey which encompasses all of the small journeys of our lives; more than that, it is an allegory of our psychic and spiritual journey. In the second Canto of the Inferno, Dante learns that his journey has been a gift from heaven, and gradually he realizes that he has been given a mission to bring justice and peace to society. Dante’s poem is concerned not only with the major sins which can destroy human beings but with the effect their actions have on society itself. This lecture will concentrate on Dante’s growth in understanding, love, and hope.

For ages 55 and up.
