Dante’s PURGATORY, Canto 28: EUNOË






Name means “well minded”

Remember every good deed

Drink from Lethe first


NOTE: After the saved souls purge their sins, they go to the Earthly Paradise and drink from two streams. First they drink from the Lethe, which removes the sting of sin. Then they drink from the Eunoë, which revives the memory of every good deed they ever performed.
