(Dante Alighieri)
Italy (1265 - 1321)

Dante was an Italian poet and moral philosopher best known for the epic poem The Divine Comedy, which comprises sections representing the three tiers of the Christian afterlife: purgatory, heaven, and hell. This poem, a great work of medieval literature and considered the greatest work of literature composed in Italian, is a philosophical Christian vision of mankinds eternal fate. Dante is seen as the father of modern Italian, and his works have flourished since before his 1321 death.
