Treason in America – An Overt Act Giving Aid and Comfort to the Enemy

In Dantes Inferno, traitors occupy the 9th level of Hell, closest to the center. Paul Gustave Doré (1832-1883) depicted Dante visiting with traitors trapped in ice.

Historically, treason was one of the most grievous sins. In Ancient Rome traitors were thrown onto the Tarpeian rock from the Capitoline Hill. In Dante’s Inferno, Brutus and Judas Iscariot occupied the lowest tier of torment.
