"Allegorically, the Inferno represents the Christian soul seeing sin for what it really is, and the three beasts represent three types of sin: the self-indulgent, the violent, and the malicious. These three types of sin also provide the three main divisions of Dante's Hell: Upper Hell, outside the city of Dis, for the four sins of indulgence (lust, gluttony, avarice, anger); Circle 7 for the sins of violence; and Circles 8 and 9 for the sins of malice (fraud and treachery). Added to these are two unlike categories that are specifically spiritual: Limbo, in Circle 1, contains the virtuous pagans who were not sinful but were ignorant of Christ, and Circle 6 contains the heretics who contradicted the doctrine and confused the spirit of Christ. The circles number 9, with the addition of Satan completing the structure of 9 + 1 = 10."

"Love, which in gentlest hearts will soonest bloom
seized my lover with passion for that sweet body
from which I was torn unshriven to my doom.

Love, which permits no loved one not to love,
took me so strongly with delight in him
that we are one in Hell, as we were above.

Love led us to one death. In the depths of Hell
Caïna waits for him who took our lives."
This was the piteous tale they stopped to tell."

(Inferno V.Ciardi)

Oleg Ferstein Day was departing, and the embrowned air
Released the animals that are on earth
From their fatigues; and I the only one
Made myself ready to sustain the war,
Both of the way and likewise of the woe,
Which memory that errs not shall retrace.
O Muses, O high genius, now assist me!
O memory, that didst write down what I saw...

Jos Letschert You terrible storyteller, how lucky we can be that gods and satans are only products of our fantasy, sources for painters and novelists, how sad we should be that borders between fantasy and reality are often crossed and exploited, thurified and praised to the skies. We are our own gods, as wel as our own devils on this heaven or hell we call earth. Nevertheless, myths are so inspiring.

Alexandru Crisan fantastic selection dear Oleg, one in return, also from Dante's Inferno:

"Midway in our life's journey, I went astray
from the straight road and woke to find myself
alone in a dark wood. How shall I say
what wood that was! I never saw so drear,
so rank, so arduous a wilderness!
Its very memory gives a shape to fear."

(Inferno, tr. John Ciardi.)

Alexandru Crisan Indeed, dear Josh Letschert, I become a terrible storyteller...:))))
p. s. but are you completely sure all are products of our imagination, or fantasy as you call it?
