“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.”

― Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

 

Dante’s “Divine Comedy” is one of the most important and long-lasting works for literature. Versions and editions have been published regularly since the 15th-century.

 

In 1732, a Jesuit professor from Florence, Pompeo Venturi, published an important critical edition of ‘Divine Comedy’. It is known to ‘favor the confessional verse against the philological, as it offers an explanatory exegesis, serving God’ (Spera). Interestingly, Venturi, a Jesuit, sought to defend the temporal power of the pope and his authority with this work. Venturi criticized Dante’s ‘pluristilism’ which linked Venturi to Bembian doctrines, (i.e. literary theories of Pietro Bembo). (Spera).

 

This 1793 printing of Venturi’s famous ‘Divine Comedy’ was published in Venice in three vellum-bound volumes.
