Understanding Dante’s Inferno

At the end of our journey in CC 102, all first year Core students walk with Dante down through the inferno, up to purgatorio, and finally end in paradiso. The Divine Comedy, written in the early 1300s, is master piece full of things too awful and too beautiful for the author to describe.

Though many Core students claim that these three books are some of their favorites from the Core, unless the reader is incredibly knowledgeable of the Old Testament, the New Testament, and Florentine politics in the time of Dante, it is easy to get lost in the endless references and subtleties each book contains. Thankfully, this interactive diagram of the inferno is here to help our readers!

In a Prezi-like style, this website breaks down levels of the inferno, the characters the reader meets in each section, and where they are referenced throughout the book. The link can be found here:https://www.alpacaprojects.com/inferno/en/
