Dante's Inferno...Your "Hell" is due on Thursday, Jan. 6th!

Dear Humanities Kids,

If you missed class, we completed the following:

1. You were introduced to images of Dante's impression concerning Lucifer. We then proceeded to read Canto XXXIV and discuss the lowest level of Dante's Inferno.

2. We then started discussing the Renaissance time period, and the significance of symbolism within pieces of art.

1. Underworld is due on Thursday. Remember that you need to have your visual interpretation indicating both Romanesque and Gothic time periods. Your seven sins and their punishments should also be indicated.

2. Your written portion needs to include the following points:
                a. Your sins
                b. Why you consider each "sin" a crime
                c. Punishments (bold/underlined type)
                d. Why the punishments are appropriate for the particular sin

I look forward to your "Inferno" assignment!
