Canto 8. Guardians (Jan. 2017)
In the original poem's eighth Purgatorio canto,
the travelers spot two guardian angels descending to
keep watch over the valley as night deepens.
After that Dante encounters Nino de’ Visconti,
a Florence judge, then spots three low stars, and
finally sees a serpent the guardian angels chase away.
