Title
Sanctification and Therapy: The Model of Dante Alighieri
Abstract

The Christian experience called "€œdying to self"€ and involvement in secular psychotherapy have been described in some religious circles as mutually exclusive if not antagonistic. The present article suggests that this is not necessarily the case. Careful analysis of one historically significant description of the process of sanctification, Dante Alighieris Purgatorio, reveals several procedures frequently found in contemporary therapeutic practice.
