Dr. Alessandro Vettori, a native from Florence, parishioner of Notre Dame and Professor of Italian at Rutgers University, will offer a free Course on Dante's Divine Comedy on Saturday mornings, at 10:30am, Sept 17, 24, October 8, 15, 22 and 29.
The six meetings will focus on a few but very famous and emblematic episodes of the Comedy, three from Inferno, two from Purgatorio, and one from Paradiso. Divina Commedia reflets on the eternity of the soul by narrating the author-protagonist's journey across three differnt kingdoms of the afterworld. While visiting hell, purgatory, and heaven, Danted offers an account of horrific eternal punishment in his Inferno, of temporary remedial suffering in Purgatorio, and finally of perpetual bliss as reward for saved souls in Paradiso.
