La Commedia 32. At the Gate of Purgatory

from Purgatorio, Canto IX

Woodcutt-La Commedia 32. At the Gate of Purgatory

At the gate of Purgatory Dante becomes a penitent. The angel who guards the gate traces seven Ps (stands for “peccatum”: sin) on Dante’s forehead with the tip of his sword, symbolising the Seven Deadly Sins. These letters will be erased one by one as he completes the circling of each terrace.


Printed on hand made Japanese paper in the edition of 30.
