The traitors to their country are in this round, which is named after Antenor who betrayed Troy to the Greeks.
Round 3: Ptolomaea. Traitors to their Guests — a big no-no in all written history. Ptolemy, according to the Bible, invited Simon Maccabaeus, his father-in-law, and his sons to a banquet and then killed them.
So, he should also be in Circle 7, Round 1. And really how do they solve these things down under? Round 4: Judecca.
Traitors to their Lord.

And the only one bigger than Jesus is His Father: God himself. This is his description: O, what a marvel it appeared to me, When I beheld three faces on his head! Too bad! We kinda liked the second one better. And you know the drill: 7 terraces of Purgatorio — here we come!
Well, not exactly, because the first two are located in the Ante-Purgatory. Ante-Purgatory 1: The Excommunicate This is the base of the Purgatory mountain, reserved for those who delayed the time before they turned Christian.
They have to wait here 30 times the period of the delay before they are redirected to heaven. So, an eye for an eye.
Divine Comedy: Inferno
Or, more like, 30 eyes for an eye. Their waiting periods?
As many years as they lived. It is at this moment that Dante falls asleep — just before the dawn of Easter Monday — and he wakes up in front of the door of Purgatory. First Terrace: Pride We kind of feel that those in the ante-purgatory will have a better time than those inside. For example, the prideful — the good prideful — are cleansed from their sins by carrying huge weights on their back, as opposed to just waiting for time to pass.
Because of their weights, they are unable to see the beautiful sculptures around, all of which are representations of humility. OK, the second part — not that bad. They just wander around on a cloud of black smoke, which symbolizes the anger they felt on earth.
So good that they were repentant: it saved them a lot of trouble! Fourth Terrace: Sloth There is no better way to punish a slothful person than forcing him or her to run. God knows this full well, so the slothful do nothing else but restlessly run around the fourth terrace of the Purgatory. Which made us think: not one marathon runner will end up here! Fifth Terrace: Avarice The Avaricious and the Prodigal lie on the floor of the fifth terrace hands and feet bound together, face facing the ground.
The reason? Sixth Terrace: Gluttony The repentant gluttonous have to purge themselves by constantly experiencing hunger and thirst even though there are many fruit trees around them. But, God has a good sense of humor throughout all this, so he has put the trees there so that the gluttonous can watch, but not touch.
You know — Tantalus-like. Seventh Terrace: Lust The penitent lustful are the ones who are closest to God. However, they do have a serious problem here, because they need to pass through a wall of flame.
And then Virgil says the magic words: Beatrice is on the other side, waiting for you in Paradise. Or, better yet, Romeo and Juliet are the Dante and Beatrice of later days. Or, at least, they would have been if Romeo had seen Juliet just twice and had fallen madly in love with her, but Juliet had married another man and had borne him few children before dying at the age of Possibly not even knowing who Dante was, let alone that he had loved her.
But, you see, writers have an unfair advantage over everybody: they are capable of changing history.
And even getting the girl of their dreams in the fictional land of their imagination. Not that he minds.
Pretty obsessed guy, ha? Like forcibly being taken out from a convent by a king. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do in life! Second Sphere, Mercury: The Ambitious So, you can be ambitious and yet be nice enough to earn yourself a place in Heaven?
Because it means that you can occupy other countries and still be considered good enough for Heaven. Mostly, though, the lovers of God and humanity.Bolgia 6: hypocrites. Thanks man.
The first ring houses those who were violent against their neighbors, so a fitting place for Alexander the Great. The world of the early 21st century echoes with images and fears of a chaotic existence with wars, natural disasters, crime, murders, assaults of all kind haunting our daily awareness. Bolgia 2: flatterers.
