Dr. Sebastian Mahfood has kindly shared these Dante videos with us: he has made a short video reflection on each canto of Dante’s Inferno. We hope you find these helpful in your studies. If you are interested in Purgatorio and Paradiso, Dr. Mahfood’s videos for those are available on his Youtube page.
Please be aware that this is a challenging work with complex and mature themes. These optional video explanations contain vintage illustrations that may be disturbing, and in some cases, contain unclad human forms. Parental discretion is suggested.
We hope to have the rest of the videos posted soon. We wouldn’t want to leave you in the Inferno!
