Final thoughts on dante

Overall, I was simply amazed by the creativity of Dante in the Inferno. It was very brave of him to write about Christian teaching in this way. Not only did he greatly help average people to understand the Bible. Not only that, he also wrote it in vernacular. Overall, it is really apparent how much Dante cares about spreading knowledge to the average person .

I also think it's interesting that in Dante's depiction of hell, his last circle is described as ice rather than fire or heat. This is different than the typical archetype of hell and shows Dante's portrayal of hell in an alternative viewpoint.
