The article is dedicated to the philosophy of Dante’s poetic language in his Comedy. The study is based on the 52 – 54 verses of the XXIV Canto of Purgatorio. Its objective is to analyze the terzina comparing it to the treatise “De vulgari eloquentia” and to eventual scriptural and theological sources of the Poet. In the terzina as well as in the threatise the pneumatological doctrine of human’s creation by the Holy Spirit - which is closely connected, for Dante, with the topic of creation of language – plays a very important role. However, while the treatise talks about a human language, and the communication between Adam and God is mediated by the air, in the poem God-Love speaks to the poet secretly, at heart. Thus, Dante’s poem is to become an answer to this love. The language of his poetry holds in itself a sign of Creator and leads a reader to the contemplation of Divine Love.

Abstract

The article is dedicated to the philosophy of Dante’s poetic language in his Comedy. The study is based on the 52 – 54 verses of the XXIV Canto of Purgatorio. Its objective is to analyze the terzina comparing it to the treatise “De vulgari eloquentia” and to eventual scriptural and theological sources of the Poet. In the terzina as well as in the threatise the pneumatological doctrine of human’s creation by the Holy Spirit - which is closely connected, for Dante, with the topic of creation of language – plays a very important role. However, while the treatise talks about a human language, and the communication between Adam and God is mediated by the air, in the poem God-Love speaks to the poet secretly, at heart. Thus, Dante’s poem is to become an answer to this love. The language of his poetry holds in itself a sign of Creator and leads a reader to the contemplation of Divine Love.
