Canto 33. Purity (March 2017)
(fourth incarnation)

"Now as three, then four, alternately, and weeping, the ladies
began a sweet psalmody, singing: ĎDeus, venerunt genes."
So begins the original poem's final purgatorio canto.
Beatrice leads the procession from the tree to a spring the
two rivers Lethe and EunoŽ flow from, rivers meant to cleanse
the memories of pilgrims before their ascent to heaven.
