    They look like mosques. But that’s racist, right?

    Shouldn’t the be a little Judas being chewed by the mouth of Satan there in the Plain of Ice?

    The photos from the link are mislabeled if not incorrect. The top one is Lust, not Limbo. Dante did not associate Lust with burning. The punishment for Lust is being blown about in a perpetual whirlwind because you could not control your passions in life.

    And Satan’s head in the “treachery” tableau does indeed need Judas, Brutus, and Cassius in his mouth.

    NJSue – wow – there is someone else who has actually read Inferno? Did you also read Purgatorio, and Paradiso? (I don’t blame people for skipping those two – they are fairly boring in comparison.)
