Summary
"As well as presenting fresh interpretations of the Divine Comedy based on the philosophical thought of Augustine and Aquinas and the hermeneutics of Heidegger and Gadamer, the work offers unique perspectives on various passages that have troubled scholars through the ages. Dante's Hermeneutics of Salvation breathes new life into Dante's journey, making our own reading of the poem a genuine participation in its profound truth and meaning."--Jacket
