Title: Canto 6


1
Canto 6
 
  • Sam Doescher
  • November 10 2007

New Characters
  • Ciacco-(means Pig) was a political figure in
    Florence who lived while Dante was alive.
  • Cerberus-three-headed dog who guards the entrance
    to the underworld
  • Plutus-mythological god of the underworld and god
    of wealth and guardian of the 4th circle aka. the
    great enemy

Circle 3
  • In canto 6 Dante is in the 3rd circle which is
    that of Gluttony. The punishment in this circle
    is Filthy rain ,very cold weather and the dead
    souls being tormented by Cerberus. In this level
    Dante meets Ciacco.

Ciacco
  • Ciacco was a political figure in the time that
    Dante was alive. When Dante meets Ciacco he
    tells Dante a few premonitions like how his party
    will lose power in Florence within 3 years. He
    also asks Dante to talk about him when he returns
    to Florence because he wants to be remembered.

5
Florentine Politics
  • Florence was politically divided between two
    rival factions known as white and black Guelph's.
  • Dante, a white Guelph, was part of the city
    government that made this decision
  • Six hundred leading white Guelph's (Dante among
    them) were forced into exile.
  • The black guelphs prevailed because they were
    supported by Charles of Valois, a French prince
    sent by Pope Boniface VIII

6
Last Judgment
  • Virgil tells Dante that Ciacco will not rise
    again until the "sound of the angelic trumpet"
    and the arrival of the "hostile judge"
  • According to the accepted theology of Dante's
    day, souls would be judged immediately after
    death and would then proceed either to hell (if
    damned) or purgatory (if saved) this judgment
    would be confirmed at the end of time
  • In canto 6 we also learn with Dante-character
    that souls of the dead will be reunited with
    their bodies at the end of time.
