Why did Henry Longfellow translate The Divine Comedy?

Longfellow translated the text because he wanted assist Dante in remaining a prominent poet, along with the Fireside poets, they translated the texts because, I believe Longfellow, found a copy of La Divina Comedia while he was in Rome and was so fascinated by it, that he brought a copy back and began to translate it for the American public, despite severe criticism from other writes and prominent figures such as Harvard and its president who viewed the text as too Catholic for the dominantly protestant region, claiming that God would not damn anyone to a specific region and punishment for comitting a single sin. Longfellow, Fields, Holmes, and Lowell were all approached in different ways to try and convince them to quit the translation and so they could keep their positions in both society and their respective fields.

Why does hell exist?

Hell exists because of the wisdom and justice of God.
We hold it to be evident that an infinitely wise Creator, whose wisdom is vastly manifest (for example) in the wonders of our bodies, would not be so unwise as to neglect unfinished business. If a tyrant "escapes judgment" by swallowing a painless poison, to our mind it is axiomatic that his tribulations have just begun. God is just (Deuteronomy 32:4).

The existence of a spiritual place or places in which the souls of the dead are treated in accordance with their behavior when alive (reward or punishment), is a tradition of mankind, which finds expression (in differing details) in various religions. It cannot be conclusively proven as long as we're alive; and that's the whole point: God tests us as to whether we will live in a way that demonstrates that we're aware of His presence, even though His presence is not readily visible.See also:

In Dante's Inferno does Virgil belong in hell?

Not entirely, although this is ambiguous. Virgil lived before the Christian era, he was never exposed to Christianity, and thus God placed him in Limbo, with others who lived before Christ. Virgil was simply given the task of escorted Dante through the levels of Hell. Although Limbo is not entirely considered "Hell", it is in Hell proper, although there is chance for those in Limbo to be saved, and brought to purgatory when the final judgement comes.

"I AM THE WAY INTO THE CITY OF WOE.

I AM THE WAY TO A FORSAKEN PEOPLE.

SACRED JUSTICE MOVED MY ARCHITECT.

ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE. "

In middle Italian:

Per me si va nella citta dolente per me si va nell'eterno dolore

per me si va tra la perduta gente

giustizia mosse il mio alto fattore

facemi la divina podestate

la soma sapienza e la primo amore

devante a me, non fuor cosa create

sei non eterno, ed io eterno duro

lasciate ogne speranze voi qu'intrate

Translation:

Through me the way to the suffering city

Through me the way to eternal pain

Through me the way that runs amond the lost

Justice urged on my high artifier

my maker was divine authority

the highest wisdom, and the primal love

Before me, nothing but eternal things were made

and I endure eternally

Abandon all hope, who enter here
