Dante's purgatory, part of his Divina Commedia / Divine Comedy. Illustration by Gustave Doré. Canto III lines 54-59 'And while, with looks directed to the ground, / The meaning of the pathway he explored, / And I gazed upward round the stony height; / On the left hand appear'd to us a troop / Of spirits, that toward us moved their steps; / Yet moving seem'd not, they so slow approach'd.' Dante Alighieri: mid-May to mid-June 1265 - September 13/14, 1321.
