Abbot Gregory's "Evenings In Hell"

Did you miss out on taking Abbot Gregory’s class on Dante’s Inferno during your time at Priory? Now is your opportunity to spend some time with Abbot Gregory and discuss Inferno, the first part of Dante Alighieri s 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is an allegory telling of the journey of Dante through Hell, guided by the Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine circles of suffering located within the Earth. Allegorically, the Divine Comedy represents the journey of the soul towards God, with the Inferno describing the recognition and rejection of sin.

The group will be limited to 12 alumni and will meet every other week from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. CST beginning Tuesday, Feb. 2. The discussions will continue until you have journeyed through hell!
