ARGS 810 - Dante: The Inferno

3 credits
This course offers the student the rare luxury of the medieval “lectio,” a careful reading of Dante’s Inferno with relevant commentary.  The vast scope of the Divine Comedy invites the reader to explore, by way of poetic imagination, a wide array of topics pertinent to understanding the late medieval/early Renaissance world: its history, politics, philosophy, theology and spirituality.  In the Inferno, Dante takes us through the nine circles of Hell, a paradigm of human existence.
