La Commedia 55. The Sphere of the Fixed Stars

from Paradiso, Canto XXII

Woodcut-La Commedia 55. The Sphere of the Fixed Stars

Beatrice shows Dante the earth through the seven spheres, which they left behind only a little time ago. Dante is astonished by the huge distance he has travelled with Beatrice, and he also sees other constellations including the Gemini: his own sign of the Zodiac. The vision of the Triumph of Christ in this sphere gives Dante strength to look straight into Beatrice’s face. A tender image of the Virgin Mary overlaps with that of Beatrice.
