paradiso1
Paradiso, or heaven, is the third and final part of Dante's Divine Comedy.  Paradiso is the destination of the good and virtuous, and like the other parts of the Divine Comedy, Dante's heaven is divided into several parts - 9 concentric spheres surrounding the Earth.  The nine spheres are The Moon (for The Inconsistent), Mercury (for The Ambitious), Venus (for The Lovers), the Sun (for The Wise), Mars (for The Warriors of the Faith), Jupiter (for The Just Rulers), Saturn (for The Contemplative), the Fixed Stars (for Faith, Hope, and Love) and the Primum Mobil (for The Angels).
