Greed causes human beings to scavenge and hold material goods, steal by either violence, tricking others, or even manipulation in reference to authority. Greed also creates the temptation of human beings purchasing or even selling sacraments and Holy Orders; which is referred to as simony.

As Dante the pilgrim continues through the circles of hell, Dante presents readers with a powerful juxtaposition between himself and Pier della Vigna, a pitiable soul condemned to the second tier of hell for committing suicide. Both men come from strikingly similar histories, but when further examined, the roads they took explain their difference. Depicted as an upstanding man of high honor, della Vigna is shown as a character that is nearly impossible not to feel sympathy for. Punished for rebelling against God’s planned time for him, della Vigna and the rest of the sinners in circle 7 will remain eternally in the non-human plant forms forced upon them, never to reclaim their human flesh for the rest of eternity. della Vigna embodies a powerful representation of the road in which
To Kill a Mocking Bird Aristotle holds that anger is “a desire accompanied by pain for an imagined retribution on account of an imagined slighting inflicted by people who have no legitimate reason to slight oneself or one’s own.” (1-3). “Anger is a complex emotion since it embraces pain and pleasure; the pain is produced from injury while the desire of taking revenge is somehow results from the injury.

It is also energy it can be positive or negative; if it is used positively, it creates a change in the world but if it is used negatively it can be devastating, the acknowledge that anger has both aspects the negative and the positive one.
In The Comedy, Dante the Pilgrim develops a relationship with his damned idol, Virgil, in order to journey through both Inferno and Purgatory. Even though Virgil was a good man while living, he lacked understanding of certain virtues, like pride, which prevented him from being able to reach higher levels in the afterlife. Dante the Poet’s choice to damn Virgil conveys that obeying a higher order is the way to one’s salvation. The developing relationship between Virgil and Dante the Pilgrim throughout the first two canticles brings light to the opposing separation between the two characters because of the devotion Dante has to Christian virtues in comparison to Virgil’s pagan misunderstanding of virtue. While Dante the Pilgrim experiences many
In Dante’s Inferno, he writes about his journey through hell for the purpose of recognizing his sins. He goes through this journey with Virgil, a voice of reason for Dante. Dante meets people through his journey of the many circles in the Inferno that lead him down into the center of hell, where Satan is. Satan is seen as being monster-like with three heads, representing a mocking of the Trinity and blowing his wings around the cocytus river. The final thing seen here is the fact that Dante’s description of Satan is a bit disappointing compared to the other descriptions he has written about the inferno.

The heretics are put in the 6th level of Dante 's Hell. A heretic is someone who does not believe in God. At the front of the gate there were Rebellious Angels, now turned from beautiful to hideous. Their punishment is that they have to be in a fiery tomb that never stops burning. I found that interesting because God wants you to love him and heat or warmth is assassinated with love.
In Dante's inferno, Dante explains how each sin is punished in a certain way. There’s the seven deadly sins which includes: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed and sloth.

Dante was considered to be an original genius, for setting his own rules, creating persons of overpowering stature and depth, and imitating patterns of earlier masters. He is known as one of the best literary icons of the Western world, after inspiring many writers, and artists. The Inferno is not just a journey that Dante takes through Hell, but rather his journey and time with people from his past.
In Dante’s Inferno, Dante thoroughly describes what he believes Hell to be. He lists many sins, along with their punishments and placements in Hell. Strangely enough, Dante does not have a specific circle for idolatry, the worship of idols, or something other than God. This is thought to be strange because idolatry is generally considered a grave sin. One possible explanation of this is that each sin in itself can be viewed as a form of idolatry.
Character + Theme Dante’s change of mindset from inquisitive to analytical allows him to see the effects of his actions more greatly than before. Dante’s interest in watching two souls quarrel earns him a scolding from Virgil. He encourages Dante not to be amused or interested by sinners but rather look at them through God’s justice. Dante is immediately ashamed of his action that he feels,” wheeled about with such a starch of shame that (he) grow pale yet at the memory” (30.134-135) a response he would not have shown in the earlier Cantos. Dante begins to understand how his actions affect himself and the people around him, interest or compassion for the sinners does more bad than good for both of them.

Each mythological character, whether it be human, animal, or somewhere in between, has its own place in Dante’s Hell which make it seem more realistic and expressive. Dante’s skillfully placed people, used guardians or guides of different circles of hell, can be seen as a foreshadowing of what has yet to come. The first human-like figure Dante encounters, Charon, is the boatsman of the river Acheron.

PATIENCE: THE WAY TO COMBAT ANGER Chad Hobbs GENE 150: The True, Good, & Beautiful 3/10/2018 Anger: The deadly vice When somebody thinks of wrath, they think of destruction, or of the wrath of their parents finding out that they snuck out of the house at 2 a.m. on a school night and having to listen to the father screaming, or being punished because of his wrath. They may even think of the devastation that was caused by the hurricanes, or the wildfires, or even the school shootings.
