Canto 4: The Unbaptized

     Dante is borne across the river Acheron in his sleep, and awakes on the brink of the sad valley of the abyss.

He now enters the First Circle of the Inferno; the Limbo of the Unbaptized and those born before Christianity.

Here he finds the Philosophers (Aristotle, Plato), classical writers and Avicenna and Averroes.
