he hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who in time of great moral crises maintain their neutrality.
- Dante, 14th Century
I'm always amused by the fact that Dante places the Prophet Mohammed (pigs be upon him) in the 8th circle of hell for being a Sower of Discord. I'm curious how he arrived at that idea!
lol I had forgotten about that one. Well, even in the 14th century they weren't above theological partisanship. As for the reason for the 8th circle.. not a clue, perhaps something to do with numerology.
cute! As for the numerology thing, we can discuss the meaning of the number 8 later if you want, or not - whatever!

I've always loved this quote.
Here's a Dante's Inferno quiz you might have fun with:
I found it at another blog (wish I could think of the name right now) and I am supposed to go to Limbo.
Don't give him choices! "You WILL discuss the number eight with me AFTER you bring me gifts".
Dante knew about hell. Nice the way you arranged the image with the words.
Oh Dante, you bastard you. you have verbally painted the picture of hell my elders have warned me about for years. I can't wait to see if you're right!
Insomnia, now thats hell!
yes insomnia IS the ultimate hell. believe me, no one knows like i do
Please, everyone knows the eighth circle of Hell is reserved for those who support the Republican Party! Looking forward to seeing you there, Jase!
What can one say beyond Dante... Nice.
There's gonna be alot of Republicans....and a lot of do-nothing Dems....occupying space there.
