Dante’s INFERNO, Canto 32: CAINA


Engraver: Auguste Doré


Named after Cain

Traitors against family

Frozen up to neck


NOTE: The traitors are punished eternally in Circle 9, the lowest circle in the INFERNO. It is divided into four rings. In the first ring, CAINA, which is named after Cain, who murdered Abel, the traitors against family are frozen in ice up to their neck.
