By the due date assigned, respond to the Discussion Assignment. Post your response to the Discussion Area. Your answer should:

· Provide detailed evidence, including excerpts from the literary text.

· Demonstrate a clear understanding of the themes, genres, cultures, time periods, and texts that are this week’s focus.

· Apply APA style guidelines to the source material.

By the end of week, review and comment on two of your classmates’ answers and the peer-reviewed article that they post, writing at least one paragraph about the peer-reviewed article. Your responses should be substantive, which means that you should provide a significant level of detail in your reply and show active engagement by referencing the readings, drawing on your own experiences, giving your opinions, respectfully disagreeing where appropriate, or asking questions designed to generate further discussion on the material and its implications outside the realm of the question.

Question: One of the major themes in The Inferno is the relationship between God and humanity, particularly as it relates to sin and God’s justice. Let’s explore what the scholarship has to say about this topic. First, review the lecture on evaluating sources and locating peer-reviewed articles. Then, go to the SUO library and in a scholarly journal find a credible, full-text, peer-reviewed article about The Inferno. Write a citation for the article that is formatted in APA style and then annotate the article.

Now, review The Inferno, and locate a specific passage that you feel illustrates one key aspect of the relationship between God and humanity. Provide your interpretation of this relationship. How does Dante imagine the relationship between God and humanity? What are the differences between your interpretation and the article you located? What are the similarities?

Remember that your claims in all parts of the assignment should be substantiated by excerpts from appropriate sources (scholarly research and/or literary texts). Quotes, paraphrase, and summary used in the assignment should be arranged according to APA rules of style, and in-text and reference citations should be provided, also formatted in APA style. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of the post. Submit the final document in the Discussion Area.
