The Day When Dante Went to Hell
Thursday was Dantedì (Dante’s Day): March 25 in Florence, Italy. It is unanimously recognized as the starting day of Dante’s trip through the underworld. It lasts seven days, so we expect him in Paradise by next Monday.
The intensity of Path To Paradiso depicts a poetic Paradise as a series of concentric spheres surround the Earth, consisting of the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the Fixed Stars, the Primum Mobile and finally, the Empyrean. Written in the early 14th century, allegorically, the poem represents the soul’s ascent to God.
During the course of his journey, Dante meets and converses with several blessed souls. He is careful to say that these all actually live in bliss with God in the Empyrean:
But all those souls grace the Empyrean; and each of them has gentle life though some sense the Eternal Spirit more, some less.
Path to Paradiso is a striking art piece with a unique focal point for creative intellectual conversation.
