Dante's classic Occult treatise, illustrated by Gustave Dore, the famous Master engraver and illustrator we have come to appreciate for hiswork in Mackey's History of Freemasonry and Hall's Secret Teachings.

Was Dante’s masterpiece an allegorical and esoteric account of a Masonic Initiation? He was after all a member of the Fede Santa, and Albert Pike did see fit to mention The Divine Comedy no less than five times in Morals and Dogma.

After some hindrances, and having seen the hellish furies and other monsters, the Poet, by the help of an angel, passes onward between the sepulchres and the walls of the city.

Dante arrives at the verge of a rocky precipice which encloses the seventh circle, where he sees the sepulchre of Anastasius the Heretic, and descending by a very rugged way into the seventh circle, Dante and his escort find it guarded by the align="left">Worry free shipping
