“Sinners and Saints in Dante’s Divine Comedy”

By Dr Anthony Nussmeier
Associate Professor of Italian and Director of Italian at the University of Dallas

Join us for an exploration of literature’s greatest poem, Dante’s Divine Comedy. Initial lessons will introduce readers to the beauty of the epic poem, as well as to the fractious history of Dante’s Italy and his at-times contentious relationship with the institutional Church. Subsequent lessons will explore select canti from the three canticles (books) of the poem: Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise. Students will consider the role of the saints in Dante’s epic – including, among others, St. Lucy, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Dominic, St. Bernard, and St. Francis of Assisi – as well as their counterparts, the sinners residing in Hell, the obverse of all that is saintly.
