Purgatory

I finally finished reading the “Purgatorio”, Dante Alighieri’s second book in the Divine Comedy. If the “Inferno” discussed about the nature of sin and its causes, the “Purgatorio” on the other hand, discusses about the identification of sin and its renunciation. A good book to read if you’re someone who wonders about the mysteries of our faith.

What I liked about the book is that its set in a realistic fashion. It’s like you’re there, experiencing what’s going on, witnessing the events as they unfold and learning at the same time. I like the way the author discusses the matters of faith and reason in a logical manner. The story also contains a lot of symbolisms and allegories, so be advised: Be ready when you do.

Enough said, I’m off to “Paradiso”…
