HOW LONG DID IT TAKE ADAM TO SIN?

***

Just over six hours

Sinned a little after noon

Created at dawn

***

NOTE: Dante asks Adam the first man some questions, including how long it took him to sin after being created. Adam was created at about 6 a.m. (sunrise) and he sinned and was banished from the Earthly Paradise at just after noon. Therefore, Adam lived without sin for just over six hours. He also asks how long Adam spent on Earth and in Limbo. Adam lived 930 years on Earth and 4,302 years in Limbo. And he asks Adam which language he spoke. Adam spoke a language that became extinct before the attempt to build the Tower of Babel.
