Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 32: TRAITORS


Engraver: Auguste Doré


the worst of the worst

punished here in Circle 9

Inferno’s bottom


NOTE: Circle 9 is where traitors are punished: traitors against kin/family, traitors against government, traitors against guests or hosts, and traitors against God. Being a traitor is committed in cold blood, and so traitors are frozen in ice.
