Dante’s Inferno, Canto 18: malebolge






The 10 Malebolge

These are 10 evil pockets

Punish simple fraud


NOTE: Circle 8 punishes those unrepentant sinners who committed simple fraud against those to whom they did not have a special obligation of being trustworthy. Themalebolge are 10 evil pockets or evil ditches in which different types of sinners are punished. Bridges cross the evil ditches, but at least one bridge has been broken.
