Dante Alighieri Life and (1265 – 1321)

Dante Alighieri was born in Florence around 1265. In Florence, in 1300, he became an ambassador and was appointed "prior", one of the 100 leading citizens who ran the city in rotation. He confronted the Pope Boniface who condemned him to be burnt at the stake for his political beliefs. 

"It was Boniface," writes Duffy, "who declared the first Jubilee or Holy Year in 1300, when tens of thousands of pilgrims converged on Rome to gain indulgences, adding enormously to the prestige of the papacy and the spiritual centrality of Rome." All who visited were promised "full and copious pardon", and so enriched Rome's churches that the sacristans "had to scoop in the pilgrim offerings with rakes".

It was Boniface, too, who in his bull of 1302, Unam Sanctam says: "It is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman pontiff."

When Boniface sent a military envoy to Florence to conquer the place for the Church, Dante agreed to go to Rome with two other ambassadors of the republic. While he was away, enemies at home cooked up charges against him, Boniface detained him in Rome and he was sentenced to death.

In 1315 he was offered an amnesty, and friends and relatives wrote urging him to come back. He rejected them all, and in return was once again condemned to death, this time in company with his children. He died in Ravenna in 1321. 

Dante's visit to Venice was also the cause of his death, because on the way back, he contracted malaria which killed him in Ravenna September 14, 1321.

The Florentine poet Dante Alighieri is considered one of the greatest poets of all time
