Hild proceeds apace. To keep you amused while I’m in the seventh century I give you the Dante’s Inferno Test (via Jonathan Jarrett’s blog). It looks like I’m going to hell, the sixth level, for lust, heresy, and violence (though, interestingly, not gluttony).
The Dante’s Inferno Test has banished you to the Sixth Level of Hell – The City of Dis!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Level Score Purgatory (Repenting Believers) Very Low Level 1 – Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers) Moderate Level 2 (Lustful) High Level 3 (Gluttonous) Low Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious) Moderate Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy) Low Level 6 – The City of Dis (Heretics) Very High Level 7 (Violent) Very High Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers) Moderate Level 9 – Cocytus (Treacherous) Moderate
Sixth Level of Hell – The City of Dis
You approach Satan’s wretched city where you behold a wide plain surrounded by iron walls. Before you are fields full of distress and torment terrible. Burning tombs are littered about the landscape. Inside these flaming sepulchers suffer the heretics, failing to believe in God and the afterlife, who make themselves audible by doleful sighs. You will join the wicked that lie here, and will be offered no respite. The three infernal Furies stained with blood, with limbs of women and hair of serpents, dwell in this circle of Hell.
Limbs of women and hair of serpents. Oooh.
