Further information

This has been a fairly simple presentation of Dante’s Inferno.

The treatment of sin and evil in the Inferno is much more nuanced than diagrams alone can communicate, although the organization of sins is fascinating in itself.

There are many editions and translations of Dante’s Divina Commedia – why not read more, or come along to the Lectura Dantis Andreapolitana readings and lectures?

You can find out more on our website (link on the right) , and sign up for our mailing list.

    I'm using this Reply Box to ask a general question. I hope that's ok. The last posting of the Lectura Dantis Andreapolitana videos seems to have been August 3, 2017 (_Paradisio_ XIV). Is there any plan to post 15-22? Do they exist elsewhere? Did these lectures take place? Thank you for your time. Mark Libreville, Gabon

      Dear Mark, sorry for the long delay in responding to your message. Yes we have the other cantos recorded and will be trying to get the site up to date during the summer. Thanks for your interest in our project, all the way from Gabon.

    I have enjoyed the lectures on Inferno and was wondering if the University had any plans to publish the texts of these lectures either in hard copy or online. I am sure that they would be very much appreciated.

      Thanks for your comment and interest. Yes, we are working on editing the first volumes now and eventually they will all be published. The plan is to publish in six volumes, two per cantica, contiing 16/17 lecturae each. Since the lectures have all been recorded, we have encouraged contributors to feel free about departing from the spoken text in preparing the published version, and this has been taken up in varying degrees.

    I found this to be positive and thought provoking. I am taking lectures on Dante at university, and I have learned to appreciate the fantastic scope of the Commedia, and that it will take more than a one hour lecture per week to really come to grips with this fantastic piece of early renaissance literature.
