These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Italian literary critics have dissected the poem word for word over the centuries finding new meanings for each verse. And knowing the Dante's love for allegories, they might be partially right.
What an Idiot: Some of the Hypocrites have this response to Virgil trusting the devils regarding how to cross over their tier of Malebolgia when, in fact, all of the bridges are broken. One essentially says "Lying is in the devil's nature. Weren't you aware of this?"
What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The final cantos of Purgatorio describe creatures that wouldn't be out of place in the biblical Book of Daniel or Revelation to John. These included 6-winged angels with eyes covering their wings, a gryphon, an analogue for the Whore of Babylon, and a giant who abused said Whore of Babylon.
