Averroes and Dante

This project touched on the significance of Averroes’ place in the Inferno while also pointing to further directions of research relating to medieval Islamic philosophy in the works of Dante.

Here is a link to a presentation (formatted as a PDF) that was given on 29 April 2020 for an undergraduate class on Dante’s Inferno.

Due to the length of the project, I was only able to cover the significance of Averroes’ place in the Inferno while also touching on elements of medieval philosophy in the Paradiso, although I believe that there is a significant amount of unexplored content regarding the topic of medieval Islamic philosophy in the works of Dante.
