Saga Egmont

  • Ne "La Divina Commedia", seguiamo l'io narrante, che può essere visto come Dante stesso, in un viaggio attraverso le varie fasi dell'aldilà: Inferno, Purgatorio e Paradiso. Questo poema epico del XIV secolo è una delle opere letterarie più importanti al mondo. È pieno di simbolismo numerico e cristiano e mostra la percezione comune del mondo, dell'universo e in particolare di Dio e della fede.



    Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) fu un poeta, scrittore e filosofo morale italiano, originario di Firenze. Trascorse alcuni anni in esilio, a causa del suo coinvolgimento politico e della sua scrittura impegnata, nella quale egli sostenne fortemente, tra le altre cose, una rigida separazione tra Chiesa e Stato. Fu durante questo esilio che scrisse il suo capolavoro, "La Divina Commedia".

  • Dante Alighieri's journey continues in the third part of "The Divine Comedy". Opposite to the main subject in the previous two parts, "Paradiso" depicts virtues and not sins as it represents the soul's ascent to God. Dante's journey goes through the nine spheres of Heaven, associated with nine different virtues such as Justice, Faith, Love. Which is the last stage of Dante's journey and what will it bring to his soul?

  • "The Divine Comedy" is one of Dante Alighieri's poetic masterpieces which was written in the early 14th century. It consists of three parts, Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso, and it depicts an imaginative journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise, which can be analyzed at a deeper level presenting the soul's journey from rejection to redemption. The poem examines questions of justice, punishment, sin and virtue. As it depicts the eternal duality of a human's soul, it represents as well not only the medieval, but also the contemporary world.

  • "Inferno" tells the story "of those who have rejected spiritual values", of those who are lost and are unable to find the right way to salvation. It describes each sin and the corresponding punishment. It differentiates between Purgatory and Hell by presenting people begging for forgiveness and others willing to justify their sins. "Inferno" represents the Christian soul who gets to see what it really is to commit a sin and what is to be expected in the afterlife.
    "Inferno" is the first part of Dante Alighieri's medieval poem "The Divine Comedy" which was written in the period 1308-1320. It depicts the nine circles of Hell and Dante's journey through them.

  • "Purgatorio" is the second part of Alighieri's poem "The Divine Comedy". The story of Dante travelling through the nine circles of Hell in "Inferno" continues as he survives the depths of hell and climbs the mountain Purgatory. The mountain has seven terraces which represent the seven deadly sins and the seven levels of suffering which lead to spiritual growth. The story depicts love as the initial reason for the arising of sins. On top of the mountain is the Earthly Paradise. If the soul is however going to reach it, depends on the choices one makes.
