In Paradiso, Dante, cleansed of sin, is guided by his beloved Bearice through the nine heavenly spheres, wherein he encounters the souls of the virtuous, his will and intellect are perfected, and he is at last capable of the fullest understanding of love as he achieves the mystical vision of God.
The Paradiso is the most challenging and ambitious of the three cantiche of The Divine Comedy in that the poet must find language capable of expressing the inexpressible, of giving vivid life to a vision of a spiritual state beyond human experience, and nearly beyond human imagining. The result is the culmination of Dante's epic journey from moral and spiritual darkness to the light and joy of saving knowledge.
