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.
