The Origins of Humanism from Lovato to Bruni. Studies in Medieval and Reformation Thought, Jean de Meun, Durante and Bindo Bonichi. Because Dante spent nearly half of his adult life perfecting his highly coherent masterpiece, most evidence needed to demonstrate the constant elaboration and reevaluation of the wide-ranging ideas that lay behind the genesis of the Commedia must be sought in the influence of his contemporaries and in an analysis of his minor works.
The first eight cantos of the Inferno , for example, seem to belie an initial intention to structure the work based on the Seven Cardinal Sins. Dante chose to present himself as a scriba Dei in order to communicate his sincere message of reform to a larger audience than that which would have responded to a philosophical encyclopedia and abandoned his earlier moral allegorical readings of the Aeneid in favor of a more congruously constructed theory of allegoresis that stemmed to a certain degree from an increased familiarity with Latin literature.
These fresh concerns drove him to find a new language and a new literary form that were appropriate for the realization of his most ambitious project. All desire, Guittone maintains, makes man an enemy to reason and thus results in a metaphorical death in life. Barolini analyzes Doglia mi reca as the poem moves from courtly matters to moral concerns, drawing attention to the submerged common theme of the poem: While the image of the afterlife finds many of its sources in the popular tradition, it is mostly high Christian theology that influences the uniquely detailed structure of the Inferno.
From the contrapasso to the deadly potential of human desire, to improperly directed love, the theology of Hell draws its laws from Augustine and Thomas Aquinas. Essays in Honor of Melvin J. Friedman , edited by Jay L. Associated University Presses, , pp.

It originally appeared in Dante Studies 84 , Argues that carnal love figures as the imperceptible, precarious point of contact with the divine.
The aporia between carnal love and reason finds resolution in the written word in Dante, as the confluence of two otherwise conflicting agents: In Inferno 5, the love of Paolo and Francesca bears witness to the irreconcilable relation of eros, on one side, and history, law, and reason, on the other. The Earthly Paradise at the end of Purgatorio proves that carnal love alone allows human beings to transcend history and rationality and become one with the divine.
The Earthly Paradise is the ideal locus, or rather a non-place, in which humans exit history to be rejoined with the divine, where reason and the babelic confusion of languages no longer exist.

It also featured several captions or intertitles that cited directly from Dante. This essay explores the fascinating interactions among gender, power, and language in thirteenth- and fourteenth-century Italian vernacularizations. Vernacularization lies at the heart of Italian writing in this period, from prose versions of classical literature and rhetoric to the translation of Aristotelian science implicit in the love lyric. Ultimately, this essay shows how gender complicated the already anxiety-ridden project of vernacularization by feminizing the discourse of Latin learning, ennobling the vernacular and those who used it, and thus posing a potential threat to learned, Latin, male privilege.
It originally appeared in Dante Studies 93 , Rome had been singled out by God as the seat of the once untainted church and as the home of the only empire that had conferred universal peace. The Veltro , who will be an emperor yet to come, will finally destroy such greed through restraint of law. Such an emperor will be free from avarice because he already possesses all. Di Scipio , Giuseppe. Forum Italicum Press, Harvard University Press, The essay traces an Augustinian paradigm in the prologue scene of Inferno 1, in the figure of Ulysses, and in the overarching conception of the Comedy as a spiritual autobiography.
This obstacle can be overcome only through an askesis , a descent into oneself in humility, or death to the self, which in the Comedy becomes the journey through Hell. The conclusion develops the parallels between the Confessions and the Comedy as spiritual autobiographies, particularly in the relation between author and protagonist. Gillerman's discussion of several of the more important illustrated manuscripts notes the presence of two distinct kinds of illumination: She notes that a comparison of the various manuscripts with other religious and secular codices from the same period could help identify the individual artists and help date the illuminated manuscripts of the Commedia.
