Dante's Prayerful Pilgrimage
Typologies of Prayer in the Comedy

(Brill, 2019)

by Alessandro Vettori, Rutgers University

Introduced by Maria Luisa Ardizzone, NYU

In Dante’s Prayerful Pilgrimage, Alessandro Vettori provides a comprehensive analysis of the prayerful phenomenon in Dante’s Commedia and considers prayer a poetic/metaphorical pilgrimage of the soul toward the vision of the Trinity, while also reflecting Dante’s own exilic experience.
