    And it is in such terms that Dante ends his account of philosophy-as-wisdom. This synthesis of the natural and the intellectual universe expresses an ideal of education which harks back to the late-antique sources of twelfth-century Platonism, but which Dante has imbued with new life. It is not known where he spent many of his years in exile, but he was often well received. Read an in-depth analysis of Dante. There, lady philosophy was depicted in books 2 and 3 as offering human beings the capacity for contemplative unity with God through their devotion to her.

    Dante still lies in the monastery of the Franciscan friars in Ravenna.

Dante realizes he must face evil Satan and rise toward the stars to the promise that is found in Heaven.
