Description

Dante’s “re-presentation” of God’s art in Purgatorio X

This canto takes place on the terrace of Pride, where Dante provides three examples of the virtue of humility sculpted like bas-reliefs into the mountain of Purgatory. Here we will examine the poet’s use of art representing art and the implications this “visible speech” has for the souls subjected to this purgaion.
