Description:

Written over seven hundred years ago, Dante’s Divine Comedy remains a classic of the Western literary canon and one of the most masterful poems ever written. Join Italian literature expert Alan Perry to discover why its commentary on the human condition still resonates strongly today. In this powerful audio course, you’ll learn why The Divine Comedy is profoundly meaningful not only to Christians but to anyone grappling with the big questions of existence and morality. Through twenty-one compelling audio lectures, you will experience Dante’s encounters with significant characters in each realm, asking questions such as What does it mean to be a good person? Why do bad things happen to good people? and What is so troubling about moral failure and sin? Throughout the course, you’ll witness Dante’s skillful weaving of Classical and Biblical literary traditions and learn how the events of his own life informed the text. Through his memorable exchanges with different souls who teach him about the struggles of sin, the call to forgiveness, and the joy of heavenly bliss, you’ll see why this poem retains such timeless appeal.
