Recently, I was reminded of Dante’s Inferno…and the inscription:

“Through me the way into the suffering city,
Through me the way to the eternal pain,
Through me the way that runs among the lost.
Justice urged on my high artificer;
My maker was divine authority,
The highest wisdom, and the primal love.
Before me nothing but eternal things were made,
And I endure eternally.
Abandon every hope, ye who enter here.”

Of course, I didn’t know you could take a “test” and find out to which circle of hell you would be consigned to. However, there is one available. My results appear at the bottom of this entry.

What mad me recall Dante’s Inferno? Well, it was The Shrewdness of Apes blog post that appears here. I have to marvel at the writing on this site…

…high school is organized into concentric circles of despair and Sisyphean drudgery which align quite nicely with the Nine Circles of Hell our friend and eternal optimist Dante Alighieri described so fully.

I encourage you to read it…fascinating.

As to where I would end up? Pretty darn scary questions that caused some introspection.

You have escaped damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven.
