Polis (Santiago)

On-line version ISSN 0718-6568


BLANCO JIMENEZ, José. Him who did for vileness the great refusal. Polis [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.41, pp.327-352. ISSN 0718-6568.

For centuries, the majority of La Commedia commenters have supported, without any historical basis, that the anonymous character from Inferno III, 59-60 must had been the resigned Pope Celestine V. For the first time I carry out a philological analysis of the work and -respecting Dante's words- arrive to the conclusion that is not that pontiff. I accept, instead, the idea that it could be Pontius Pilate.

Keywords : Dante; Italian medieval literature; Celestine V; Pontius Pilate.
