Our two main projects are: an animated tour of all thirteen books of
(go to Euclid's Elements)
and a video presentation of
Dante's Divine Comedy
with the principal medieval, Renaissance and modern illustrations. Dante's poetic vision united pagan Greco-Roman, Old Testament Jewish, Christian, and mystical Islamic elements in a nova explosion of poetic generous mind.
(go to: Botticelli's Dante Illustrations, Britto's illustrations from the first printed Divine Comedy, illuminations to Dante from a thirteenth century Sinenese manuscript, Audio-Book of the Divine Comedy.)
The Online Renaissance translation of Purgatorio is available in print and as an e-book from Amazon here.
