EXEMPLA OF PRIDE

***

art is didactic

here on the mountain; learn from

exempla of pride

***

NOTE: The art here on the Mountain of Purgatory is didactic; one can learn by studying it. Previously, Dante and Virgil saw exempla of humility; now they see exempla of pride. By studying the art, one can learn about virtue and about vice.
