Dante’s PURGATORY, Canto 24: Names






Who are these saved souls?

Forese names them for Dante.

No reason not to.


NOTE: Dante’s friend Forese Donati names several saved souls here. There is no reason not to. In the Inferno, many sinners did not want to be remembered in the Land of the Living. The saved souls, however, can benefit from the prayers of the virtuous living. Also, they want their loved ones to know that they have been saved.
