Seventh Terrace - Dante enters the Fire from Purgatorio, Canto XXVII
On the terrace of the Lustful, the final one, Virgil coaxes frightened Dante to enter the flame: “Look, my son, only this wall separates Beatrice and you.” Dante follows Virgil into the fire. Although the heat feels tremendous, Dante is not burnt. Virgil keeps on talking to Dante about Beatrice’s beautiful eyes to give him assurance.
