Dante’s Inferno, Canto 9: THE GOOD ANGEL


Engraver: Gustave Doré


Damned souls see him, flee

The good angel is scornful

Who can resist God?


NOTE: The good angel walks on water and opens the gate of Dis to allow Dante and Virgil to enter. The Furies, Medusa, and the damned dare not oppose him because he is carrying out the will of God.
