Circle 1: Limbo


Canto IV
Like an eternal waiting room, where you're going nowhere.




The virtuous unbaptized:
Those who died before the birth of Christ
Or without being baptized (pagans and babies)
But were basically good people.

They are not punished. They merely stay where they are, unhurt, but unable to see God.
