Can Dante REALLY Save Your Life?

On this episode, Fr. Gingerich is joined by Anthony Esolen (translator of The Divine Comedy) and Sean Johnson to discuss the poetry of Dante, even as the “100 Days of Dante” are underway. We explore the spiritual benefits and theological insight of the Divine Comedy, the necessity of beauty, the blessing of poetry, how beauty is not something highbrow or elitist, and creating things of beauty in our own lives.
