Inferno by Dante
Spiritual lessons from Dante
Holy Apostles College offers Dante's course led by Dr. Sebastian Mahfood for free this summer. They use Ciardi's translation, the reading load is one canto (one song/chapter) per day plus watching short video and the starting date is May 5th. We will follow their daily schedule and meet once a week to watch Dr. Esolen's video series done by Catholic Company for that week of reading, and discuss spiritual sense of the readings, connection with the Scriptures and selected saints' writings.
Those who studied Screwtape Letters will find many connections.
