Transcript of Dante's Inferno: Circles 5 and 6

Circles 5 and 6 Dante's
Inferno Circle 5 Complainers
and Wrathful Circle 5:
Part 1 At the end of canto 7, Dante
describes the souls that were
wrathful and angry
for all of their life.
They are punished
by being bound
to the bank of the river Styx by
drowning in mud.
Their wrath was built up
so much that they released
their anger on any
and every person
that was present at that time. Circle 5:
Part 2 Also in circle 5 there are souls that Dante is unable to see, but his guide, Virgil, is able to see them. He explains that they are drowning in the river Styx for they mumbled and overly complained about their lives. Genesis 49:7

Cursed be their anger,
so fierce, and their fury,
so cruel!
I will scatter them in Jacob
and disperse them in Israel. Complaining is pretty much the same thing as it was in Dante's time. Americans don't know how fortunate they are because most people in the world don't have fresh food or clean water. Americans complain about how they don't have the new iPhone 5, or a nicer house. All of these complaints are worthless and, overall, just downright annoying for those who have to listen to them.They are the ones who are cast to the bottom of the river, where their voices will be silenced by the water. Circle 6: Hedonism Some people wonder if this still continues. People today, who are non religious, seem to believe that the soul dies with the body. They really don't care about life and just do what makes them happy. Dante's Inferno really
shows the depth of Hell, how God couldn't show mercy to the sinful that had been cleansed of death. For the Bible states "The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation." (Numbers 14: 18) By Annika Cuil
and Raasha
Gutierrez Lamenations 3: 38-39 states

Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
that both calamities
and good things come?
Why should the living complain when punished
for their sins? Wrathfulness and Anger are shown in today's society the same way they were in the time of Dante. It seems even more present now because people are used to getting what they want and doing little work due to the advanced technology. They develop anger against those who have what they want. Their anger turns to wrath and builds up so greatly over time that they are blinded to the rest of life and what is truly important. They don't envision God, causing them to be cast into the fifth circle where they suffer for their sins. Although being wrathful
and angry is damaging,
God will forgive.
After Cain had been wrathful
towards Abel and killed him,
God showed forgiveness by
putting protection over Cain. The Wrathful
and angry The Mumblers and
Complainers Matthew 23:13
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter
who are trying to. The 6th circle in Inferno contains the souls that were Hedonists. Hedonism is the belief that the soul dies with the body. The people normally waste their lives with the pursuit of pleasure. The souls are bound to tombs that are on fire. In part two there's also a whirlpool that Virgil talks about. We thought it would
be fun to add. Well... Not quite. Our journey doesn't end until.... They came across... A Minotaur!!! Which sadly is in circle 7 :( Now... The End ;) Peter complained a lot to Jesus because they were out of money. Jesus used most of the money to help people. God did forgive Peter in the end though. Jesus constantly taught the Pharisees about being hypocrites and heretics. He warned that they would be rejected from the kingdom of God. They decided to ignore God's word and do what they wanted anyways. They were cast into the 6th circle for ignoring the Son of God. Yea, yea, I know it's a square... Don't judge me! Presented by Annika Ciul
& Raasha Gutierrez Numbers 14: 18 'The Lord is slow
to anger abounding in love and
forgiving sin and rebellion.
Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;
he punishes the children
for the sin of the parents... Genesis 4:13-15
Cain said to the Lord, "My punishment is more than I can bear. Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me."
But the Lord said to him, "Not so; anyone who kills Cain will suffer vengeance seven times over." Then the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one who found him would kill him Who doesn't love
random fun facts? :) Hedonism: the pursuit of pleasure. For those being punished in the 5th circle for their wrath and anger, their punishment is terrible, but not fitting to them. They are stuck to the bank, only giving them more "reason" to be angry and complain. It would be more appropriate for them to be somewhere they are chained or unable to show their wrath. For those being punished in the 5th circle for their complaints during life, their punishment is worthy of their sin. They are stuck at the bottom of the river Styx, where they are silenced by the water. Their complaints cannot be heard, thus making their punishment acceptable. For those being punished in the 6th circle for their heresy, the punishment is acceptable. They are stuck in tombs, so they cannot escape and roam in an attempt to pursue pleasure. All are constantly kept on fire so as to burn away their sin. Punishments The End
