The Paradiso: A Reading & Commentary, Part II

In this conclusion of his series on Dante, Dr. White follows the poet as he moves upward through the spheres of heaven. Dante contrasts the cosmic order –– the perfection in which God dwells –– with the earthly order that, in reality, tends toward disorder and the failure of man. Dr. White brings several passages to life with his dramatic reading, culminating in Dante being tested on his faith by none other than St. Peter himself who, perhaps prophetically, rails against the corruption of the future Church.
