Reading through Purgatory again very slowly, it’s interesting to see how one of the key claims of the whole book, and especially in the first Terrace – is that acknowledging and accepting the limitations of our intellect and reason is fundamental to spiritual, and real, growth.

In many ways – this lies at the very heart of the Renaissance. Arts & Sciences unified, Human Experience and the Transcendent Mysteries and Inspiration consciously combined and present at the same time.
