Life’s Journey and the Christian Way
This year we commemorate the life of the Italian poet, Dante Alighieri, who was born in Florence and died in Ravenna, 700 years ago (14 September 1321). His ‘Divine Comedy,’ originally called ‘Comedia,’ is widely considered one of the great works of Western civilisation. It is certainly one of the most important and influential poems of the Middle Ages and the greatest literary work in the Italian language. His depictions of Hell (‘Inferno’), Purgatory (‘Purgatorio’) and Heaven (‘Paradiso’) served as the inspiration for a huge body of art, music and literature and had a powerful effect on theology, language and devotional thinking and imagery.
