Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series
Friday, Sept. 7, 6:15pm-7:30pm, West Norman Public Library (300 Norman Center Ct.)
"Sin and Death in Dante: From Limbo to the Lowest Circles of Hell" presented by Roberto Pesce, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, University of Oklahoma.
Over the doorway of Hell, in Dante’s Inferno, are the words: “Abandon all hope, you who enter here.” Dr. Pesce’s talk will focus on the first and the last sinners visited by Dante, to explore how the great Italian poet developed his cosmic view of human sinfulness.
The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the OU Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no tests, just interesting information about life long ago.
