Dante’s Inferno, Canto 17: greedy moneylenders






Greedy for money

Moneylenders did nothing

Worthy of notice


NOTE: Because the greedy moneylenders used their talents only to acquire wealth, they accomplished nothing of lasting value while they were alive. Dante can recognize no greedy moneylenders in the INFERNO.
