    In which circle of Dante's Hell will you spend eternity? Take this test and find out!

    Caution: There are some questions on this test you may not want to answer, or that you may find are offensive just because they are asked. I know I found some of them offensive, but remember, this is Medieval Christianity we're talking about:

    Dante's Inferno Test

    My result: Purgatory.

    For those interested, here's a link to Wiki that describes the circles and levels of hell in Dante's Divine Comedy.

    Eigth Level of Hell - the Malebolge

    Many and varied sinners suffer eternally in the multi-leveled Malebolge, an ampitheatre-shapped pit of despair Wholly of stone and of an iron colour: Those guilty of fraudulence and malice; the seducers and pimps, who are whipped by horned demons; the hypocrites, who struggle to walk in lead-lined cloaks; the barraters, who are ducked in boiling pitch by demons known as the Malebranche. The simonists, wedged into stone holes, and whose feet are licked by flames, kick and writhe desperately. The magicians, diviners, fortune tellers, and panderers are all here, as are the thieves. Some wallow in human excrement. Serpents writhe and wrap around men, sometimes fusing into each other. Bodies are torn apart. When you arrive, you will want to put your hands over your ears because of the lamentations of the sinners here, who are afflicted with scabs like leprosy, and lay sick on the ground, furiously scratching their skin off with their nails. Indeed, justice divine doth smite them with its hammer.

    Luna,

    Even though the original, pre-English Old Testament did not include the word "Eternal", I took the test anyway.

    Wow, it sent me to the Second Level of Hell. (Probably due to my non-monotheistic answers. I answered no to the Pimp question....)

    I'm going to be doing a lot of the "limbo" rock throughout eternity.

    It's interesting that taking the test only qualifies one to reside in hell. What happened to the other place up there, or is that only supposed to be a figment of one's imagination ?

    flow....:rolleyes:

    You have escaped damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven.

    Hi,

    Well, aren't I a bad boy?

    The sweet light no longer strikes against your eyes. Your shade has been banished to... the Ninth Level of Hell - Cocytus!

    Ninth Level of Hell - Cocytus

    This is the deepest level of hell, where the fallen angel Satan himself resides. His wings flap eternally, producing chilling cold winds that freeze the thick ice found in Cocytus. The three faces of Satan, black, red, and yellow, can be seen with mouths gushing bloody foam and eyes forever weeping, as they chew on the three traitors, Judas, Brutus, and Cassius. This place is furthest removed from the source of all light and warmth. Sinners here are frozen deep in the ice, faces out, eyes and mouths frozen shut. Traitors against God, country, family, and benefactors lament their sins in this frigid pit of despair.

    Here is how you matched up against all the levels:

    Right in the middle of heaven is a walled garden, with high walls, and with significant 'keep your distance' signs on the outside. At various points, a signboard proclaims:
    "Please keep quiet. Catholics within, and thery think they're the only ones here."

    I shall be inside, but close to the wall, whistling "All Along The Watchtower," if anyone wants a chat ... bring a ladder.

    Whew! Thought I would end up on Level 2.

    Does anyone believe that something simliar awaits the damned?

    Well at first glance, I thought I was doing pretty well. Then I noticed that I scored very low among the heretics. Now I'm worried....:D

    Snoop...good work...I always knew that you had potential. And you must agree that the priority of your state of "being" in the future will be better than my fate of being "done away with" by the Vatican.

    I HATE TESTS !

    Gosh...it will be as if I never existed.

    flow....:eek:

    Hi,

    Well priority is certainly one word to describe my fate. If I've been treacherous to my own country does that mean I could be frozen next to Tony Blair?:mad:
