65 He defines the literal sense simply as that sense intended by the author, but he opens up the range of authorial meanings by identifying the author with God, citing Augustine once again as an authority. His view of the literal sense is thus much closer to Augustine’s than it is to a modern view of the literal sense containing a single, unambiguous meaning. ’ As with Augustine, spiritual meanings are produced by the fact that the scriptural words refer to things, which in turn refer to other things.
In order to understand why, we must begin by trying to comprehend more fully how pre-modern men and women read the Bible. The Argument In the first chapter, I a empt not to provide a detailed reconstruction of the sources of Dante’s biblical knowledge, but to explore the poet’s conceptual understanding of the scriptures, as, in my view, this is more important for understanding the passages where Dante explicitly evokes the Bible as a sacred text in his poem. 34 There are, thus, two tasks I undertake in the opening chapter.
It soon becomes clear, however, that Dante feels that in his time readers no longer read the Bible in this way. He writes his poem, at least in part, to bring readers back to an encounter with the Bible, to help them see it again as key to a proper understanding of the world. In chapter 3, we begin our exploration of passages in the first two canticles that are specifically and crucially informed by biblical texts, starting with the Inferno. At the very beginning of the poem, Dante recounts his story in what can only be called a biblical landscape – an environment derived from, and interpreted through, the Bible.
