A unique event staged in November 2012—and repeated in November 2013—brought together ND students, faculty, and other members of the campus community who love the Italian language, the poet Dante, and his immortal poem, the Divine Comedy.
Simultaneous public readings of famous passages from Dante’s works were read at various campus locations and the event culminated with a choral reading of Saint Bernard’s famous “Prayer to the Virgin” from the last canto of Paradise at The Grotto.
