Virgil brings Dante to the gate of Hell. Above the gate, there is a dark inscription, which gives a terrifying warning to those who enter.

 

Canto III, 1-9

“Through me the way is to the city dolent;

Through me the way is to eternal dole;

Through me the way among the people lost.

Justice incited my sublime Creator;

Created me divine Omnipotence,

The highest Wisdom and the primal Love.

Before me there were no created things,

Only eterne, and I eternal last.

All hope abandon, ye who enter in!”
