Abstract:

As the unsurpassed Christian epic poem, Dante's Divine Comedy provides not only far more personality and emotional depth than the pagan epics, it opens up all the issues on which Western history turns--truth, beauty, goodness, sin, sanctification, and triumph. In this guide, evangelical theologist Leithart brings his biblical-typological insight to bear in opening up the Comedy for students, high school and up. After examining the meaning and place of the courtly love tradition leading up to Dante, the heart of the guide walks us through the craft and symbolisms of each progressive stage. Each section contains study questions.--From publisher description.
