Dante_s Inferno by Gerard Van der Leun from flickr

Satan in this story is very different than most interpretations. Most beliefs that I know of have him wandering around Earth tempting people, but in Inferno, he’s trapped in ice. He is being punished himself. It’s hard to comprehend just how massive he is though. I know of two of the people who are in his mouth (Judas and Brutus) but I’m unsure who the third is.
