Afternoon Seminars & Workshops
FC-02 Dante and the Virtues
Diana Pavlac Glyer
Dante’s Divine Comedy has been called the greatest of all great works. In this seminar, we will study this epic poem in order to understand why it continues to enlighten, challenge, and inspire. In particular, we will look at how Dante’s journey through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven may encourage us in our own pilgrimage to know the love of God.
