  • In Canto seven, Virgil and Dante travel to the
    Fourth Circle in Hell and find the demon Plutus.
  • The pair pass the demon by Virgils works.
  • Dante finds that a ring is formed with two groups
    of souls pushing weights at each other making
    there efforts pointless.
  • These souls are of those who hoarded and
    squandered their money.
  • Most of the souls here are unrecognizable to
    Dante.
  • They then head to the Fifth Circle of Hell to
    through the muddy river Styx were they find the
    presence of the wrathful, the people who lived
    angry lives.

  • This is a picture of Dante and Virgil passing the
    Demon Plutus, heading into the Fourth Circle of
    Hell.

4
  • All of the souls in the Fourth Cirle of Hell are
    of those who hoarded and squandered their money
    during their lives.

5
  • Most of the souls here are those of Popes and
    clergymen Cardinals.
  • Virgil tells Dante that they all share one same
    characteristic they were not prudent with the
    goods of Fortune.

6
  • Virgil explains that Fortune is transfer
    worldly goods between people and nations through
    the instruction of god.
  • Men who curse her when there possessions are lost
    end up here.

Soon they travel down to the Fifth Circle of
Hell, which borders the muddy river Styx. Covered
in mud on the banks are the souls of the wrathful
who lived angry lives. However Virgil informs
Dante that many souls lie under the mud that he
can not see. The souls under the mud are those of
the sullen, those who muttered and sulked under
the light of the sun. Now these souls gargle and
choke under the mud.
