Gustave Dore Canvas Print Of The Demon King Minos With His Serpent Tail.
The Divine Comedy is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri. It is about a trip through the afterlife. The poem has three parts: Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory), and Paradiso (Paradise, or Heaven). The Divine Comedy is a piece of world literature.
Inferno is the most famous section of the poem. The poem is about the travels of a man through Christian hell, purgatory, and heaven. Note that "comedy" does not mean funny here, but rather that it has a positive ending.
In the Divine Comedy Minos is located in Hell at the entrance of the second circle because the souls in Limbo, situated in the first circle, have no sins to confess and are not judged.
In Dante’s vision, Minos is appointed the task of listening to the sins of souls, who reveal everything to the demon. Upon learning their sins, Minos indicates to them their destination in hell by wrapping his serpent tail around his body as many times as the appropriate circle.
Gustave Dore illustrated scenes from the divine comedy around 1855, but the poem was written 1308 - 1320.
