Dante’s Inferno – Nine Circles of Hell Infographic
According to this unique infographic about Dante’s Inferno there is a place for everyone among the nine circles of Hell. I don’t think any of us want to find our way into these places but it may be good to know where our sins could get us placed for eternity. Just a quick recap, here are the following level of Hell: Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and finally Treachery.
I find it very interesting that lust is near the top, when in today’s world that is probably seen as one of the worst vices to have. I assume in Dante’s time that lust was more permissible while violence and fraud were seen a bigger threat to society.
And while the subject of Hell and any of the layers Dante puts forth should be unnerving, you have to admit that characterizing the Nine Circles of Hell as pixel creations makes the thought of being in one of the levels a little less horrific.
