Dante’s Inferno, Canto 8: fallen angels


Engraver: Gustave Doré




Dis is a city

where the fallen angels stay

they hate God and good


NOTE: After crossing the Styx, Dante and Virgil arrive on the shore where is the Hellish city of Dis. The fallen angels bar the gates of Dis so that Dante cannot enter, but Virgil tells Dante that Heavenly help is on the way.
