I do not believe that I have ever mentioned it on my blog, but I read Dante’s Divine Comedy in high school. I went on to take a semester-long course (which became one of my favorites, though I was not a literature major) on the Divine Comedy in college, where I came to appreciate and understand the work much better. Today I took the Dante’s Inferno test online, though I recognize that I am not out of the proverbial woods yet when it comes to salvation, it was an amusing test. Additionally, however little the test means in actuality, it is nice to be told that I am headed toward purgatory, since it leads to heaven, which is my prefered way to spend eternity.
My test results:
You are one of the lucky ones! Because of your virtue and beliefs, you have escaped eternal punishment. You are sent to Purgatory!
You have escaped damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven.
