PREPARATION TO SEE GOD

***

Saint Bernard will get

Dante ready to see God:

He studies the Rose

***

NOTE: Saint Bernard will get Dante ready to see God. He does that by having Dante study the Mystic Empyrean all of its saved souls and good angels. Saint Bernard identifies some of the saved souls in the Rose.

The illustration is of Canto 31 and shows Dante and Beatrice looking at the Mystic Empyrean.
