Circle 1: Limbo



Circle 1 is Limbo. Virtuous pagans were placed on this level. This included people who did not know Christ but lived righteous lives like classical poets and philosophers.

Dante: "I cannot count so much nobility..."
Virgil: " These were sinless. And still their merits fail, for they lacked Baptism's grace..."

The poets Dante saw were Homer, Horace, Ovid, Lucan, and Virgil.
The philosophers were Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Heraclitus, Orpheus and Euclid.

From this circle Dante can see the circles of Hell. Each is a final destination for a kind of unforgiven sinner with a corresponding torment.
