Lorenzo de Medici
They were driven back for fear of the furious dead.
They were turned away by a thousand fallen angels
They were taken to the vermilion mosques.
They battled with the Guardian of the Gate.
To foretell the future.
To tell her the location of the treasure.
To bring a spirit from the circle of Judas.
To help her pass the gate of the First Circle
To tear him limb from limb.
To make him claw out his own eyes.
To throw him into the Styx.
To turn him into stone.
An angel from Heaven drove the spirits away.
Virgil led him to the secret back entrance.
The Furies were convinced to aid him.
He didn't get past them.
