Description

This epic poem was once set to song in the early 1900's and now stands as a testament to the great poetic works of the time it was originally written in. Many have gone so far as to compare the Dream of Gerontius to Dante's Divine Comedy which is a great comparison of such a lesser known work but that has great theological truths to is that it can be an important addition to anyone's library. This poem tells of an old man's journey into purgatory after he dies and what he sees when he has encountered such beings as angels and demons. Although the work is definitely Catholic in scope, some of the issues it addresses within its verses are topics and of the great Christian traditions can serious take to heart.
