What do you need to do to distinguish good and bad?
To read smart books. But not the Bible, it's not so useful
Do everything, we'll figure out later
To do? Dunno, I'm too lazy all the same
This world is too complex to distinguish good and bad
First, you need to commit a great evil act, then everybody will know what is bad
You need to do what you like. This is good. And what you don't like is bad
Good is profitable. So do it
Nothing, all this prevents one from enjoying life
I'm concerned about something more down to earth. For example, to have a meal
What do you spend more money on?
I save, it'll prove useful
Everything about love
Of course, food
Spending is not about me. I count every penny
I prefer to earn but not always in a fair way
How can you earn a living in the rough Middle Ages?
By labor, like today. For example, you can write something
If there are no options, you can sell your body
To boil the pot in a tavern, at least they'll feed you
You can earn on everything! Golden time
Maybe, you can, but I don't want to
You can become a "coach" and teach illiterate peasants
Um, to steal?
You just need to make coins at home in your blacksmith shop, no one will realize it
Well, you can borrow from someone. Of course, without return
Suppose you meet Death. How does she look like?
As usual - a scythe, black cloak, hood
She looks exhausted. It's so because she has no personal life
She's very skinny
A greedy old woman whom I'll give nothing
And what will you do when you meet her?
Most probably, I'll go through the roof
We'll have a talk, I'll confuse her with smart phrases and she'll get off my tail
I'll kill her! What an event it'll be!
I'll charm her or give a bribe
I'll just run away
What are you afraid of most?
What should I be afraid of? Nothing
Bad weather conditions - storms and the like
Angry stray animals
Pointless work. All the more on the weekend
Greyness, fog and hopelessness
Long and cruel diseases
If circumstances allow, you can -
Eat the whole cake while no one sees
Cheat on husband or wife
Hit someone who annoys you
Blow money on casino
Deceive a kid
Fake a sick-leave certificate
Let down your friend
It better not to do it, it'll be even worse
If you were left on Earth after death as punishment, what could you do to entertain?
Reading the Bible
Peeping on neighbors' personal life
Eating and not gaining weight
Earning a little bit more. What if I need it?
You can scare people who are watching horrors
Breaking in flats in the night
Opening your shop and telling stupid people their fortune
Creating a cool prank
If you have a sin, this is
Taking about nothing
Yep, I like eating. So what?
My dirty mind
Once I had to refuse my friend financial aid. And not once
I quickly lose my temper
I like to teach people
I like to make traps for stupid people
Trading church offices
I easily give up the party I support
What were you scolded for when you were a kid?
Me? I did nothing. Nobody scolded me
For coming home latte
For the eaten jar of jam
For petty theft
For never-ending fights
For silly excuses to miss classes
For love for gambling
For faking good grades in the school diary
It was not always my fault. I was framed
1 level - Limbo
The first circle of hell is Limbo, where the souls of virtuous non-Christians and unbaptized pagans reside. Ancient philosophers and poets live in Limbo (among them - Vergil): there were Noah, Moses, and Abraham - all the holy men mentioned in the Old Testament, but then they were allowed to ascend into Heaven. Guard: Charon. Punishment: painless sorrow.
2 level - Lust
Travelers are met by king Minos (a righteous judge and Minotaur's father) at the entrance. He distributes the souls by circles. Here everything is covered with mist and storms are raging all the time — strong winds hurl the souls of people who were led by the desire for fleshly pleasures. If you coveted someone else's wife or husband, were overcome by lust — your soul will be straying lost above the abyss for all eternity. Guard: Minos. Punishment: being blown violently back and forth by strong winds.
3 level - Gluttony
Gluttons are confined in this circle: there's never-ending icy rain, the souls lie in a vile slush, and demon Cerberus strips the prisoners had gotten under his sharp-clawed paw. Guard: Cerberus. Punishment: decaying under sun and rain.
4 level - Greed
The dwelling of those who spent and saved money unworthily. This is a huge plain with two groups of people. Pushing loads with their chests, they move toward each other, clash and then come apart to start it all over again. Guard: Pluto. Punishment: eternal dispute.
5 level - Anger
A giant river, more accurately, Stygian bog where souls are exiled to for laziness and wrath. All the circles up to the 5th are the dwelling of the unrestrained, and intemperance is considered less sin then anger and violent beastliness, and that's why the suffering of the souls is easier in comparison with those who reside in farther circles. Guard: Phlegyas. Punishment: never-ending fighting in the bog up to the chin.
6 level - Heresy
The flaming City of Dis (the Romans called Hades, the God of the underworld, Dis) with sisters Furies with snaky knots instead of hair guard. Inescapable sorrow reigns there, and heretics and false teachers are lying in the open tombs like in eternal furnaces. The entrance to the 7th circle is blocked with a stinking downfall. Guards: Furies. Punishment: being a ghost in flaming tombs.
7 level - Violence
The steppe where it's firing rain all the time and always the same appears to the eyes: awful torturing of the souls immersed in violence. Tyrants and murderers, suiciders, blasphemers and even gamblers (who droned their property out) get in here. Sinners are torn to pieces by dogs, they're fed upon by harpies, they are boiled in scarlet boiling water, are turned into trees and are made to run under flame jets. Guard: Minotaur. Punishment: being boiled in the red river, languished in the hot desert next to the flaming stream, being chased and torn by harpies and hunting dogs.
8 level - Fraud
The dwelling of panders and seducers consists of 10 ditches (Bolgias ), in the center of which there's the deadliest ninth circle of Hell. Visionaries, fortunetellers, sorceresses, bribe-takers, hypocrites, flatterers, thieves, alchemists, perjurers and false-coiners are being tortured next to it. The priests who sold church offices also get into this circle. Guard: Geryon. Punishment: sinners whipped by imps are walking in two counter streams gotten stuck in stinking feces, the upper bodies of some are enchained in rock, fire flows off the feet. Someone is boiling in pitch and if he sticks out - the imps thrust hooks into him. The enchained in leaden gowns are put on the red-hot brazier, sinners are being disbowelled; reptiles, lepra, and lichen torture them.
9 level - Treachery
The Cocytus icy lake is located right in the middle of the pit of hell. It's extremely cold here like in the vikings' hell. All residents are frozen in the icy lake, and the main one of them is Lucifer, the fallen angel. Judas Iscariot (the apostle who betrayed Jesus), Brute (who were false to Julius Caesar's trust) and Cassius (another conspirator against Caesar) are being tortured in three jaws of Lucifer. Guards: giants Briareus, Ephialtes, Antaeus. Punishment: everlasting tortures in the icy lake.
