Canto 5. Passion (October 2016)
(fourth incarnation)

People who were born in a culture where marriages were
prearranged by parents, like 13th century Florence,
too often found that strong attractions were thwarted.
Those who gave into those feelings while married,
were damned by the Church for breaking a commandment.
Dante showed some of mercy by placing them here.
