Dante’s Inferno, Canto 11: WORST SINS POSSIBLE




Malice aforethought

Punished in deepest circles

Worst sins possible


Note: Incontinence is evil due to lack of self-control. Violence can be and fraud is deliberately committed evil. Committing violence due to lack of self-control of anger is incontinence; deliberately committing violence is a much worse sin. Anger is punished in Circle 5; violence is punished in Circle 7.
