We're going deeper into Canto III. Here's the original text along with an excerpt from a post called “Canto 3: Anti-baptism?” by Rev. Dr. Gordon S. Mikoski at Princeton Theological Seminary, part of the Daily Dante Blog.
"Canto 3 is liminal in character. It is about crossing over from one reality to another. It is a transitional space and time. [...] Dante’s theological insight takes one’s breath away: hell means living without any hope whatsoever. If we invert this spine chilling word, we see that life in fellowship with God is a life of hope. During this Lenten season, Dante can help us to see both the horrors of life lived without hope and also the life-giving power of life lived with hope."
