The great Italian poet Dante Alighieri depicted his imagined journey through hell, purgatory and heaven in the three books of his Divine Comedy. The poem is filled with astrological symbolism and references, yet Dante consigns a few astrologers to hell with their heads glued on backwards. In episode 18 we’ll explore the complex relationship between astrology, culture, church and art in the Middle Ages with Joseph Crane, author of Between Fortune and Providence: Astrology and the Universe in Dante’s Divine Comedy.
