pocsLVG members regularly attend the weekly Program of Catholic Studies presented by St. Mary’s on Thursdays at 6:30pm in McGrady Hally (the church undercroft). This week, TJ Nielsen has arranged for a special guest speaker – Kenneth Covington – to present on the topic of Dante’s Inferno. From Wikipedia, “Inferno (Italian for “Hell”) is the first part of Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is followed by Purgatorio and Paradiso. It is an allegory telling of the journey of Dante through Hell, guided by the Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine circles of suffering located within the Earth. Allegorically, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the soul towards God, with the Inferno describing the recognition and rejection of sin.”
