Robert Royal will guide students through The Divine Comedy, a literary classic that is enjoying a renaissance as a spiritual masterpiece. In the course of exploring the human pilgrimage on Earth, Dante charts a vivid path through the canticles of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven in his legendary poem. Robert Royal presents a careful but reader-friendly approach to the poetry of the texts themselves and a biographical sketch of Dante, the man, the writer, and the spiritual lover extraordinaire.
In Divine Comedy, Divine Spirituality I, Robert will cover the canticle of Inferno. Subsequent courses will cover the canticles of Purgatory and Paradise.
