LOVE IS BLIND

***

Temporarily

Dante is blind; Beatrice

Will restore his sight

***

At the end of Canto 25, Dante becomes blind. In Canto 26, he will remain blind during Saint John’s examination of him on the subject of love, and then Beatrice will restore his sight. Similarly, Saul became blind on the road to Damascus, and then Ananias restores his sight. Saul then became Paul, and later he became Saint Paul.
