Sample text

By Henry! This new world order just might be the thing after all. But no, Henry caught a bug, or rather, it caught him, and Henry died of a fever in 1313. No more Emperor. No more Empire. Dante folded his bunting forever. There was only one thing for him to do—take a vacation. Somewhere no living soul had ever been before, . No, not Pittsburgh, but a place he and W. C. Fields would both rather be. Whew! And you were starting to think we’d never get there. 41 10/25/2011-21:06:56-form:2 TOP - Book:Layout 1 10/11/11 4:07 PM Page 42 50 42 -- Book:Layout 1 10/11/11 4:07 PM Page 43 51 PART 1.

Other small commissions followed, and Dante proved his skill at statecraft. His future in government for this moment was assured. 1300 was declared a year of Jubilee, and pilgrims who made the trek to Rome were to be granted special dispensations during this Centennial of the Birth of Christ. Dante took up the palmer’s staff and made for the seat of Christendom in time for Easter week. The city filled with devout souls, whose goal it was to reach the Basilica and seek the promised greater ease in the Afterlife.

Medieval tradition also held that Christ had made a similar journey after his crucifixion on Good Friday. “The Harrowing of Hell” was Jesus’ reclamation of all the righteous souls who had anticipated but could not lay claim to his salvation before the sacrifice on the cross. All the holy characters that animate the Old Testament and a few New Testament figures, like John the Baptist and St. Joseph, finally got their one-way escalator ride to Heaven. Dante’s visit, however, for all its impossible blessing, was a voyeuristic one, and he could not, and certainly would not, claim any comparison to the Savior’s.
