“Don’t Stop Believin’”: Dante’s and Christian’s Journey to Heaven

Abstract

Dante\u27s Divine Comedy and John Bunyan\u27s The Pilgrim\u27s Progress both encounter a protagonist who is journeying with the goal of reaching heaven in mind. During this journey, they are each met with and guided by various characters. In my paper, I focus on Virgil and Beatrice in The Divine Comedy , and Evangelist and Hopeful in The Pilgrim\u27s Progress. Along with these guides, the geography that Dante and Christian each encounter is symbolic of a maturation of faith, as well as many Catholic and Protestant themes that Dante and Bunyan practiced
