Miniature of four further episodes in the Paradiso, including the sacrifice of Iphigenia. Image taken from f. 137 of Divina Commedia (index Divine Comedy). Written in Italian.
The Divine Comedy is a poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed 1320, a year before his death in 1321. It is widely considered the preeminent work of Italian literature and is seen as one of the greatest works of world literature. The poem's imaginative vision of the afterlife is representative of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the Western Church by the 14th century.
