The Divine Comedy is truly one of the premiere works of Medieval Literature, and certainly the foremost text in the language of Orthodox Italian. The verse quoted throughout this wiki page are from the John Ciardi translation of La Divina Commedia (Inferno) and as such, will display subtle variations in prose and delivery. Certainly different than that of the Norton Anthology textbook you may be reading from.

Regardless, this wiki is intended to give one a crash course into the mind and vision of Dante Alighieri and his idea of Hell, as it were. We hope you can use and appreciate the diligence and effort that went into the creation of this project, and we hope it serves you well in your academic endeavors.
