    Dante's 'Divina Commedia'  was written in the early 1300s and was influenced by Islamic ideas and other non-Christian sources. Virgil the Poet is imagined by Dante to be his guide through hell because, as Virgil explains, he was not a wicked man but as he lived before the advent of Christ he couldn't enter into Heaven. Dante believed Virgil would be one of the souls in Limbo within hell, which would make him ideal as a tour guide of Hell. Limbo is false Catholic teaching. 

    Dante seemed to promote the idea that actions in this life bring inevitable consequences in the next. For sure, the love of God was not a medieval theme! And the Catholic church maintained that salvation was impossible (no matter how much knowledge you might have) if you did not belong to the Catholic church.

  • I see you're a little ignorant about Dante's?

    Dante's, besides being an author of his plays, hasn't created anything good, about what God's laws are.

    Dante's Alighieri was not a faithful believer of God, therefore, he invented the so-called Purgatory, and the so-called Catholic Church urged him as a religious engineer, for falsifying, that people can be saved even after physical death?

    There is no Purgatory, there is only Heaven and Hell!!!

    Not at all. His theme is  the status of the soul and God's justice dispensed as punishment or reward after Earthly death.
