Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] "Ben far" and salvation. Some reflections

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The contribution traces the occurrences of the notion of "doing well" within the Comedy, focusing on the ethical meaning on the plane, in particular, of civil and political action, and the value of personal salvation. The "well-done" of the Florentines of whom Dante asks Ciacco in the controversial sequence of the sixth canto of the Inferno (vv. 77-84), as well as that of Dante himself, exercised also through the poetic work, according to the municipal perspective and all earthly by Brunetto Latini, in the XV, are insufficient for salvation. Through the stages of the encounter with the sloths in Pg XVIII, with Stazio in Pg XXII and the triplets dedicated to Romeo di Villanova in Pd VI 127-132, it becomes clear that the "well doing" leads to salvation if oriented to the true Good , fulfillment and ultimate reason also for the same political commitment intended as cooperation to God's providential plan for the earthly and eternal happiness of man.
