Dante Alighieri (c. 1265-1321)
“Of gold and silver ye have made your god,
Differing wherein from the idolater,
But that he worships one, a hundred ye?”
- Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy (Inferno, Canto XIX), translated by Henry F. Cary in the Harvard Classics series, edited by Charles W. Eliot, and published by P. F. Collier & Son (1909, 1937).
