Dante Aligieri, the greatest Christian poet, finds himself in the midst of his lifes journey. Writing this epic poem in the 14th century, he imagines that the only way out of his impasse is through the funnel-pit of hell (Inferno) , onto the mount of purgatory (Purgatorio) , and finally, into the empyreal paradise (Paradiso).
Together this monumental epic became known as the The Divine Comedy (Divina Commedia ).
