Dante's Hell...

The major work by Dante (Dante Alighieri) was originally simply titled Comedìa, begun c. 1308 and completed in 1320. The word Divina was added by Giovanni Boccaccio and became divina commedia. The first printed edition to add the word divina to the title was that of the Venetian humanist Lodovico Dolce, published in 1555 by Gabriele Giolito de’ Ferrari.

Christopher Wray, President Donald Trump’s pick to head the FBI, earned support from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in both parties Tuesday, in part by disagreeing with Trump at almost every chance he got. Several committee Democrats, including the panel’s ranking member, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), announced they would vote to confirm Wray, likely assuring that he will become the agency’s new director.
