• I’d Belong to the Fifth Level of Hell

     If Christian superstition was right, and Hell were the way it’s described in Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy, my bodiless soul would burn (!) in the Fifth Level of Hell, or so it says the Dante’s Inferno Hell Test.

    The Dante’s Inferno Test has banished you to the Fifth Level of Hell!
    Here is how you matched up against all the levels:

    Level Score
    Purgatory (Repending Believers) Very Low
    Level 1 – Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers) Very Low
    Level 2 (Lustful) Very High
    Level 3 (Gluttonous) Very High
    Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious) High
    Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy) Extreme
    Level 6 – The City of Dis (Heretics) Very High
    Level 7 (Violent) High
    Level 8 – The Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers) Very High
    Level 9 – Cocytus (Treacherous) High

    So… Fifth Level of Hell, huh? Let’s see what that means:

    The river Styx runs through this level of Hell, and in it are punished the wrathful and the gloomy. The former are forever lashing out at each other in anger, furious and naked, tearing each other piecemeal with their teeth. The latter are gurgling in the black mud, slothful and sullen, withdrawn from the world. Their lamentations bubble to the surface as they try to repeat a doleful hymn, though with unbroken words they cannot say it. Because you lived a cruel, vindictive and hateful life, you meet your fate in the Styx.

    Ahh, piece of cake. I guess I’m not a badass after all!! I always thought of myself as a Heretic! Let me know what’s your score!

      First very low. 4 low, 6 very high and the rest moderate.

      Sounds apt.

      Good thing it’s not real.

      • I know – Dante had a lot of spare time on his hands to think of all this.

    • Smilodon’s Retreat

      Level 6 for me… though level 5 was also very high. I loved how homosexuality was asked about 3 times.

      Hmm… I wonder what I need to work on to level up.

      • Why did I score that low?!? I need to improve mi sin-niness!! Hey, good for you!

    • MaryL

      I’m going to Level 6. Bet I’ll have lots of company.

      • What?!? What are you doing that I’m failing to do?

      You beat me in every score, except #7, so that’s what they printed on my ticket….

      I don’t know how they turned my answers into “violent”, except I note that blasphemers and sodomites are included. I suppose I should have expected that.

      “Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain, their tongues more loosed to lamentation, and out of their eyes gushes forth their woe.”

      But it’s got the minotaur, and some hot centaurs! Woo-hoo!

    • I got Level 6 as well – The City of Dis. And isn’t it ironic that we’re the only ones who will merely burn, but everyone else gets creatively fitting punishments? It’s like Dante couldn’t find a poetic punishment for us, so he went with the stock answer. I am very disappoint.

      • You’re always welcome to exchange your punishment for mine!
