What do you think Dante learned on his journey through Hell? How does it differ from what you learned while reading about the journey?
I think that Dante was able to reevaluate his life. He didn’t want to end up in one of the levels of hell. He was able to refocus on his life and what matters the most to him. If he did not change the way he was living, he was going to end up going somewhere that he did not want to go. He was basically given a second chance. It doesn’t really differ from what I learned while reading about the journey. The basis of both was the same to me.
That’s an interesting way to look at it, that Dante was given a second chance to do right. So based on this, he would believe in a works-based salvation rather than a faith based.
