The Third Circle: The Gluttons
Gluttony is eating, drinking, consuming more than you need.
 Gluttons take God’s goodness and produce only “filth.”
 They wallow in “filth” while more “filth” rains on them.

Fourth Circle: The Avaricious and Prodigal
Avarice is Greed; Prodigality is Wastefulness.
Artwork by Alessandro Vellutello, c. 1560.

These are
“mirror” sins:
both miss the
point of material
goodness, and
waste their lives
in activity that
accumulates or
wastes material
things unwisely.

They roll huge
stones (wasteful
work) around in
circles, in
opposite
directions,
irritating and
scolding each
other.
Fifth Circle: The Wrathful and the Sullen
Wrath is Anger directed at others.
Sullenness is grumpiness or self-pity (anger directed in).
Again, these are “mirror” sins. Both are tormented by
demons in the muddy, gross waters of the River Styx.
 The Wrathful must fight each other forever in the Styx.
 The Sullen are submerged in it.
Engraving by Gustave Doré, c. 1860.
Fifth Circle: The Wall and Gate to Dis
The sinners in
the upper circles
of Dante’s Hell
ignored Reason;
they sinned out
mental weakness.
They are separated
from sinner in the
lower circles by
the Walls of Dis,
City of Lower Hell,
in which are held
those sinners who
used Reason
to commit evil.

computer game
Sixth Circle: The Heretics
Heresy is rejection of some element of a True Faith.

Heresy is
lower than
atheism or
paganism
because the
Mind perverts
Truth rather
than just
rejecting or
ignoring it.

Heretics are
entombed in
burning
coffins.
Gustave Doré,
c. 1860.
Seventh Circle: The Violent
Three categories: Violent vs. Others, vs. Self, vs. God

Violent vs. Others
are tortured in
boiling blood.

Violent vs Self
(Suicides) trapped
in thorn bushes;
harpies constantly
break branches.
Some have bodies
draped over their
bushes’ branches.

Violent vs. God
walk on fire, and
fire rains down.
Includes Violence
Against Art!!
Gustave Doré,
c. 1860
Eighth Circle: The Fraudulent.
“Malebolge” (“Bad Bags,” “Sacks Of Filth”)
Pimps and
Prostitutes,
Flatterers,
Simonists,
Hypocrites,
Swindlers –
all used Reason
to deceive or
mislead.
Worst are
Gossips, the
“Sowers of
Discord,”
lower in Hell
than any
sinners except
the Traitors.
As all of these have twisted truth in life, their souls’ bodies are
twisted into horrible, painful shapes.
Gustave Doré, c. 1860
