The Ninth Layer of Hell. by KassandraLeigh The Ninth Layer of Hell. by KassandraLeigh
"At the bottom of the well Dante finds himself on a huge frozen lake. This is Cocytus, the Ninth Circle, the fourth and the last great water of Hell. Here, frozen in the ice, are punished sinners guilty of treachery against those to whom they were bound by special ties. The ice is divided into four concentric rings marked only by different positions of the damned within the ice.

This is Dante’s symbolic equivalent of the final guilt. The treacheries of these souls were denials of love and of all human warmth. Only the remorseless dead center of the ice will serve to express their natures. As they denied God’s love, so are they furthest removed from the light and warmth of His Sun. As they denied all human ties, so are they bound only by the unyielding ice."

I always found it funny how you hear people go "When hell freezes over", I find their expressions funnier when you point out what the 9th Circle was supposed to be like from Dante's Inferno.
