  • Dante an epic poet that is put in Inferno and
    tries to find his way out.
  • Virgil a famous epic poet that was told to
    guide Dante through the Hell and Purgatory.
  • Malebranches - ten demons in the 4th pouche of
    the 8th circle of Hell that acted like they were
    going to help guide Virgil and Dante. (deceptive)
  • Hypocrites found in the 5th pouche, dressed in
    heavy (glittery) cloaks, and they walk very
    slowly. (as punishment)

The demons in the 4th pouche (of the 8th circle
of Hell) cant reach the Dante when they are in
the 5th pouche of Hell
  • Virgil and Dante are coming from the 4th pouche
    headed to the 5th pouche when the deceptive
    malebranches send two of their kind to guide
    them.
  • Virgil and Dante leave the two demons tangled in
    a boiling glue-like pond (the punishments and
    scenery gets worse as we move down).
  • Dante is very scared that the malebranches will
    be angry and catch up to them.
  • The malebranches are not allowed to leave the 4th
    pouche and look sown on them.

4
Discussion with the Hypocrites
  • There are two main hypocrites in this area that
    are friars from Bologna and their names are
    Catalano and Loderingo.
  • These two friars ask Dante where he is from and
    he answers them by saying he came from an area
    near Arnos (a river in Italy).
  • Dante then asks them why they cry and they
    explain they heavy cloaks.

5
The crucified Hypocrite
  • This crucified man was a site that even surprised
    Virgil.
  • Virgil had been here before, but that was before
    Christs death.
  • This man was being punished for counseling the
    Pharisees, and he let Christ be crucified to
    please many others.

6
Virgil grows angry with the Malebranches
  • When Dante and Virgil asked the two friars where
    to go, the friars told them that the bridge was
    out to the next circle of Hell.
  • They told them they can climb a rocky ridge to
    the next circle.
  • This is when Virgil found out the malebranches
    lied to him.
  • On they went to finish their journey through the
    Inferno.
