Dante's Inferno Test - moonspinner
Dante's Inferno Test
Meme. Snagged from reihla.

The Dante's Inferno Test has sent you to Purgatory!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)High
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Very Low
Level 2 (Lustful)Moderate
Level 3 (Gluttonous)High
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)High
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)High
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very Low
Level 7 (Violent)Moderate
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)Moderate
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Moderate

Take the Dante's Inferno Hell Test

Can't say I'm not pleased. :p But I'm more interested in the rather interesting inscription on the gates of Hell:

"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."

So, yes I will soon right a story called Pandæmonium which is supposedly the capital of Hell (from Milton's poem not the Divine Comedy).

What can I say? I'm a writer. Everything induces plot bunnies in me! Even the after-life. And I'm a sucker for non-English vowels. :D

Current Location: Purgatory
Current Mood: creative inspired

Heh, at least we're not heretics! I say ditch Purgatory and I'll ditch level 8. We'll go on a rafting trip down the Styx instead. At least there would be scenery... I loved the inscription on the gate too, btw. :)

Now you're making it sound like a ride at Disney World. :p

Did you get the mail I posted at the groups? What did you think about what I asked?

I love Dante's inferno. I haven't gotten the chance to read much of it yet, as it's somewhere at the middle of the "must get around to reading" pile in my library, but what I've read of it, I found intriguing. Alas, this quiz has told me I'm going to hell, though ; )

I tried reading it in university. Lots and lots of poetry and, I suspect, political allusions that went over my head (not being born in that century and all that). I did love the idea of traitors staying in the deepest (hottest) portion of Hell. I first heard of it from my reading of 'Father Brown mysteries'.

Yes, the concept that traitors would be stuck in the most horrible part of hell is an interesting idea. At first I was offended by the idea that opposing your country or leader's actions could be considered a worse crime than murder, but I can see why betraying your country + murdering people who you think of as family, or an extended version of such, would be considered the worse type of murder (cough *Vader* cough). I like the idea that Satan would be crying while trapped in an icy hell of his own making and an endless cycle of death and destruction. I'm afraid I've never heard of the "Father Brown Mysteries", however. What are they?
