This [Mount Etna] is beyond doubt a symbol of hell, whose perpetual fire will spew out flames to punish sinners who will be tormented forever and ever. For just as these mountains have endured for such a long time and continue to endure right up to the present with raging flames that can never be extinguished, so that fire for torturing the bodies of the damned will never have an end.
