Abstract

This research seems to indicate; 1), the concept of hell and its classification, 2) then compare the mythology of religious values in the book Daqa’iq al-Akhbar and La Divina Commedia. As a doctrine that exists in every religion, hell has a discussion that is often debated because each religion has a narrative characteristic to explain its definition and truth. Both East and West, they have written and literary works that reveal the truth of hell. Furthermore, this paper will analyze the comparison between the two understandings with the Roland Barthes mythological approach through critical qualitative descriptive research. The result of this study seems to indicate that there are significant similarities in understanding the concept of hell in Daqa’iq al-Akhbar and La Divina Commedia, although there are several different depictions of the physical form of hell.
