|Inspiration and Meditation through Art and Literature
Pope Benedict XV's Encyclical on Dante "IN PRAECLARA SUMMORUM" (April 30, 1921) stated that "Among the many celebrated geniuses of whom the Catholic faith can boast who have left undying fruits in literature ... highest stands the name of Dante Alighieri..." [IPS, 1] Dante's Divine Comedy is organized on the basis of the number seven - the seven circles of Inferno; the seven terraces on the mountain of Purgatorio; and, the seven spheres of Paradiso. Three pictures from The Doré Illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy are included for each of the Seven Visits. The first picture is from Purgatorio and reflects on the particular vice we wish to eliminate. The next two pictures from Paradiso are one artist's interpretation of the beatific vision - God's promise of eternal life. Pope Benedict XV further said that while the Divine Comedy "uses various symbolic images and records the lives of mortals on earth, it has for its true aim the glorification of the justice and providence of God who rules the world through time and all eternity and punishes and rewards the actions of individuals and human society." [IPS, 4]
