Dante's Nine Levels of Hell


Okay guys, a general knowledge question about a place that has always gotten a lot of rather bad press. Hell. Now these are the levels:

Purgatory

Level 1 - Limbo

Level 2

Level 3

Level 4

Level 5

Level 6 - The City of Dis

Level 7

Level 8- the Malebolge

Level 9 - Cocytus


And these persons are those goin' there, no way they won't! :

The Treacherous, The Gluttonous, The Virtuous Non-Believers, Heretics, The Wrathful and Gloomy, The Violent, The Lustful, The Prodigal and Avaricious, Repenting Believers, and The Fraudulent and Malicious and Panderers.


So who ends up in which level?

When you're done, how bout checking:


Purgatory - Repenting Believers

Level 1 - Limbo - Virtuous Non-Believers

Level 2 - Lustful

Level 3 - Gluttonous

Level 4 - Prodigal and Avaricious

Level 5 - Wrathful and Gloomy

Level 6 - The City of Dis - Heretics

Level 7 - Violent

Level 8- the Malebolge - Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers

Level 9 - Cocytus - Treacherous


How did you go? Weren't you surprised 'gluttony' is worse , spiritually speaking, than 'lust'! Perhaps this is your view of things anyway!

If you want more info bout any denizen type, just click on the level cos it's a link.
But if you just want a 'ready reckoner' to specifically place yourself ... :




To finish, a couple of modern visions from the Red Nose Gallery - 'Hell' and, to comfort and distract those definitely going to Level 9, 'Heaven':

'Hell'


'Heaven'

See you there!

  1. I'm just wondering, if us poofs are so evil, which level do we go to? And if being gay is really so evil, why didn't Jesus warn us? He didn't mention homosexuality once (according to scripture). Not once! It seems all he really wanted to talk about was love, tolerance, acceptance and compassion. Someone needs to remind the poofter-bashing fundamentalists of that.

    Thanks for the interesting post Nick.

  2. That is so sad that people live in fear of these different levels of hell. And really, if this so-called hell does exist (which I believe it don't) for all those supposed sins, then it is REALLY sad that a supposed "loving" Gawd would resort to such a fucked-up idea.

  3. As we speak they're digging a new level of hell for Bush and his enablers...
