Paradiso

Paradiso by Dante Alighieri

Paradiso is the third part of Dante's Divine Comedy. The poem follows Dante's journey out from Earth and into the heavens. He is guided on this sojourn by Beatrice, a figure representative of Christian theology. He moves through concentric spheres representing the planets of the solar system, experiencing the wonders of the universe before being brought into the heavenly realm of the Empyrean. The poem represents the soul's transmigration from Earth to God.
