Summary
This book is a tour of afterlife landscapes from Homer to Dante. It argues that the topography of the afterlife in Greek and Roman tradition, and in Dante, reflects the state of "scientific" knowledge at the time of the various contexts in which we find it, and the landscape of the Other World is a way of exploring and assimilating the shape of this world. This book posits that there is a dominant spatial idiom in afterlife landscapes, which the author calls the "journey-vision paradigm." By this she means the presence of two kinds of space in afterlife representations-the horizontal journey of the soul across the afterlife landscape, and a synoptic vision of the universe
