January 28: Man's Wings (Vol. 7, pp. 242-249)
If Dante wasn't bad enough, here comes a selection from Thomas à Kempis' "The Imitation of Christ," and his statement that "a pure heart seeth the very depths of heaven and hell."

Atheists, agnostics and freethinkers are not welcome in the world of the Harvard Classics.
