Beatrice

 

And now for something much more pleasant. Dante, having travelled with Virgil through Purgatory and the Inferno is guided by Beatrice, his former love,  through Heaven to the Empyrean, where he meets God and is enfolded into God’s love through alignment with the Divine will.

 

 

Beatrice - Gustave Dore

Purgatorio Canto XXX – Gustave Doré

“If that which is said of her, above, were all condensed into one act of praise, it would be too little to answer to this case. The beauty I saw is beyond measure, not only past our reach, but I truly believe that only He, who made it, joys in it completely.”                  Dante Aligheri, Paradiso Canto XXX
