Dante’s Inferno Test

Your fate has been decided…
You are one of the lucky ones! Because of your virtue and beliefs, you have escaped eternal punishment. You are sent to the First Level of Hell – Limbo!  Charon ushers you across the river Acheron, and you find yourself upon the brink of grief’s abysmal valley. You are in Limbo, a place of sorrow without torment. You encounter a seven-walled castle, and within those walls you find rolling fresh meadows illuminated by the light of reason, whereabout many shades dwell. These are the virtuous pagans, the great philosophers and authors, unbaptised children, and others unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. You share company with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. There is no punishment here, and the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad.  

The Dante’s Inferno Test has sent you to the First Level of Hell – Limbo!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:

Level Score
Purgatory (Repenting Believers) Moderate
Level 1 – Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers) High
Level 2 (Lustful) High
Level 3 (Gluttonous) Low
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious) Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy) Low
Level 6 – The City of Dis (Heretics) Low
Level 7 (Violent) Moderate
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers) Moderate
Level 9 – Cocytus (Treacherous) Very Low

Take the Dante’s Inferno Hell Test

Somehow, this doesn’t surprise me.  I always feel like I’m in Limbo…  or playing it.  😛

  1. Raised Unitarian-Universalist, and still agnostic, I always do terrible at these things. Yes, I enjoy food. I enjoy fermented beverages. Yes, I find women’s figures attractive — no matter how good my intentions, the road to hell is thus paved.

    Fortunately for my sanity, in this incarnation at least, I consider hell to be nothing more than a guilt-trip, and a somewhat mean tool for manipulating the common folk.

  2. You got it OB. Trod the straight and narrow and you’ll be rewarded in the hereafter… nope, nope, nope… just doesn’t jive with me.

    I just thought the test was funny… and the fact that I’m not a Christian and I still managed to wind up in Limbo, well, that’s even funnier. Looks like I’m in good company, so I’m doing something right. 😉
