Dante the Man, Part II: Christianity and Classical Culture, Episode 26
In this episode Dr. Fleming discusses the Old Testament “vendetta” attitude that many characters (including Dante) have in The Comedy, though particularly in the Inferno (understandably). Dr. Fleming discusses the sometimes understandable, but often ridiculous reasons that cities could be so partisan during this time period, shadows of which can be seen in football match brawls between supporters today (in Italy and elsewhere).
