Dante’s PURGATORY, Canto 7: NEGLIGENT PRINCES

Pur_07

Engraver: Auguste Doré

NEGLIGENT PRINCES

***

Negligent Princes

Must take care of soul, subjects

Neglected duty

***

NOTE: Sordello shows Dante and Virgil several negligent rulers in a dell. Most of the rulers neglected taking care of their souls while they ruled their subjects. One ruler neglected taking care of his subjects while he took care of his soul. God wants rulers to do both.
