EDITORS COMMENTS
This print depicts a map of Purgatorio, as described in Dante Alighieri's epic poem "La Divina Commedia" or "The Divine Comedy," written between 1307 and 1320. The map illustrates the topography of Purgatory, the second realm of the afterlife in Dante's vision, where souls undergo purification before entering Paradiso. Dante's "Divina Commedia" is considered a seminal work of world literature, and its influence on Western culture is immeasurable. The poem's narrative follows Dante as he journeys through Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, guided by the Roman poet Virgil in the Inferno and Beatrice, his ideal woman, in Purgatorio and Paradiso. The map of Purgatorio is divided into seven terraces, each representing a specific sin and corresponding virtue. The souls ascend the mountain, moving from the lowest terrace, where the least serious sins are purged, to the highest, where the most grave sins are cleansed. The souls are shown moving upwards, symbolizing the spiritual growth and progression towards salvation. The map is rich in symbolism and detail. The terraces are adorned with various structures, such as the Church of the Penitent, the Valley of the Letters, and the Garden of the Earthly Delights. The map also features intricate illustrations of the souls undergoing their purification, demonstrating the depth and complexity of Dante's vision. This map, published as a standalone print, offers a glimpse into the rich tapestry of Dante's "Divina Commedia" and the intricacies of Purgatory, a realm that bridges the gap between the earthly world and the celestial realm of Paradise. The print serves as a testament to the enduring power of Dante's work and the enduring fascination with the afterlife and the human soul's journey towards redemption.
