Which Level of Hell Do You Belong In?

The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Second Level of Hell!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Very Low
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Moderate
Level 2 (Lustful)Very High
Level 3 (Gluttonous)High
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)High
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very High
Level 7 (Violent)High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)Very High
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Low

Take the Dante's Inferno Test

At first, I was little ashamed for only achieving the Second Level. Then I looked at some of my company. Tell all the righteous hypocrites that The Minstrel Boy is hanging with Helen of Troy and Cleopatra. I like it just fine.

I did this survey yesterday, and found that I will be shipped down to Level 6, where all the heretics hang out on the group W bench. It is also where the Furies reside. So much for "Hell hath no Fury..."

BTW, thanks for blogrolling me. As soon as I figure out the mechanics and get me own blogroll going, rest assured that I shall reciprocate.

Haven't been able to sign in to comment for a while; finally just created the google account. Sooo...

Hmmmm...I ended up here:

Sixth Level of Hell - The City of Dis

You approach Satan's wretched city where you behold a wide plain surrounded by iron walls. Before you are fields full of distress and torment terrible. Burning tombs are littered about the landscape. Inside these flaming sepulchers suffer the heretics, failing to believe in God and the afterlife, who make themselves audible by doleful sighs. You will join the wicked that lie here, and will be offered no respite. The three infernal Furies stained with blood, with limbs of women and hair of serpents, dwell in this circle of Hell

But I always did like Dante's Inferno.

why did they always have to throw references to women in senerios of evil awful places/things?

nope don't answer, i already know,

because we always were a magigkal force to be delt with!

"with limbs of women and hair of serpents, dwell in this circle of Hell" geeeezzzz!

dante was working with the classical representation of the furies. they were the monsters that followed orestes around after he killed his mother clytemnestra to avenge her killing his father agamemnon in revenge for his killing of the princes iphegenia in sacrifice to apollo before leaving to fight the trojans (yes, it is tangled, isn't it?) these furies would follow orestes everywhere he went screeching "mother killer! mother killer!" when he was finally granted sanctuary by athena and given a trial before the gods he handled himself with honor. he refused the offer of apollo to take responsibility for his actions saying "it was not apollo's hand which wielded my sword." zeus was impressed by this assumption of responsibility for his actions and turned the furies into the muses. dante forgot that part. very catholic of him to focus instead on guilt and punishment.

blackdog, glad to know that you're in hell with the rest of us. maybe you might want to concentrate on a little more lust and join us for the party in the second circle. it's lots of fun. we would love to see you. it's easy just take the test again and lie about the sex stuff. see where it got clinton?

even jimmy carter lusted in his heart.
heck, we are all human. everyone looks. if we didn't, how do you explain movie stars with little talent but amazing physical attributes?

oh and i have a very old, very big copy of dante's inferno. beautiful but chilling black and white engravings.
thank you for the info, it was facinating.

Guess it's the residual altar boy in me that keeps me from falling lower. I'm in Limbo with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. The reading should be pretty good as long as Caesar doesn't insist on throwing dice all the time. It's close enough to Level 2 that maybe we could get together for crullers or something.

i always wondered about caesar making it to "virtuous pagan" status by dante's reconning. he was a fairly notorious womanizer both by his own admission and by the writings of his contemporaries. plautus modeled one of his "milieus gloriosus" characters after caesar and the stage directions called for a two person costume. one of the actors was dressed as caesar's dick and led him all around rome.

I'm with you in level two. Since you're in hell, you might as well drop by for a margarita - abstinence ain't imprtant here.

what level of hell would the jeepney's be driving around???

10:55 AM  
Blogger The Minstrel Boy said...

i imagine that jeepneys can be found in every level of hell, whether or not they take you where you want to go is totally up to the driver (which, by the way, is exactly how they operate on earth)
