This section of Discover Dante introduces Paradiso. We begin with an overview of Dante's idea of Paradise and the cosmos, before working through the text. In the case of the final cantica, the cantos are divided into the different Heavens of Paradise, and major themes are discussed as we move through the text. Please use the links at the left and at the bottom of each page to navigate this section of the text.
Online lecture: a lecture by Claire Honess (University of Leeds), entitled "Dante and the Vision of Paradise", is available online. To watch this lecture, click here (streamed file).
