Circle 8: Fraudulence

Canto XVIII
SINS OF THE LEOPARD: FRAUDULENCE


This circle (called Malebolge, Italian for Bad Circle) is divided into ten sub-circles called "Bolgias."


Bolgia 1: Panderers, Seducers
Bolgia 2: Flatterers
Bolgia 3: Simoniacs
Bolgia 4: Fortunetellers
Bolgia 5: Grafters (Barrators)
Bolgia 6: Hypocrites
Bolgia 7: Thieves
Bolgia 8: Evil Counselors
Bolgia 9: Sowers of Discord
Bolgia 10: Falsifiers


The pimps and seducers are whipped; the flatterers are forced to wallow in muck; simoniacs are buried upside down and burn.
