Reading selections from Dante’s Divine Comedy, we will learn about the history and culture of the medieval Mediterranean world. While Dante’s poetic vision of the afterlife offers a panorama of the medieval world, many of the issues confronting him and his age are important to us today: social justice, the relationship between church and state, personal and civic responsibility, governmental accountability, and literary and artistic influences. All readings are in English. No pre-requisites.
