VIRGIL’S SPECIAL POWERS

***

Has enormous strength

— Virgil has special powers —

and knows Dante’s thoughts

***

NOTE: Virgil also always knows what time it is and the location of planets and other Heavenly objects although it is always night in the Inferno. (The statue depicts a famous scene from Virgil’s epic poem titled the Aeneid: Aeneas carrying his aged father out of the burning city of Troy.)
