One thought on “Dante and Islam

  1. His main point is indubitable, but he overplays a lot of the particulars.

    Dante is relentlessly Thomistic and treats pagans like the church fathers have always treated them. Subversively.

    The short answer for why weird people show up in weird places is that, as Beatrice explains, the Commedia is a symbolic structuring to bring him to understanding. It is not a map of the afterlife.
