Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy with Robert Royal
This is a series of guided videos through all three parts – Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso – of the Divine Comedy. The Catholic Thing ran this series in 2021 and, in response to overwhelming interest, we are now making it available on demand.
You may choose to take any one course, or all three. But to have the experience of the poem (and spiritual pilgrimage) Dante intended, we suggest taking them in proper order. Many people who’ve read Dante at some point have usually stopped with Inferno. But there’s a great deal more in the Comedy about how to free ourselves from sin and develop virtues in Purgatorio, and then the unparalleled splendors of Heaven in Paradiso. If you have the time and the inclination, do yourself a favor: commit to experiencing the whole thing.
