Engraver: Auguste Doré
They used talent for evil
Dante has talent
NOTE: In the eighth bolgia of Circle 8, the evil advisors are punished by being enclosed in a flame. These sinners had talent, but they used their talent for evil, not good. Dante has talent, and he must learn here to use his talent for good. If he uses his talent for evil, when he dies, he will be eternally punished here.
