Extra Ecclesia Nulla Salus

Apparently, Dante would have placed me in Purgatory. Here is how I matched up against all the levels:

LevelScore
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Extreme
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Low
Level 2 (Lustful)High
Level 3 (Gluttonous)Very Low
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)Moderate
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very Low
Level 7 (Violent)Low
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)Low
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Very Low

You, too, can take Dante's Inferno Hell Test (link via Rake's Progress). Fortunately, since I share Catholicism with Dante, and not just a love of Latin literature, my lust and anger will be absolved at the last trumpet. However, let me not presume the clemency of the Holy Spirit: where did I put that flagellum?
