• This card is based on a lesser-known character present in Dante Aligheri's Divine Comedy known as the 'Black Cherub'. In Canto XXVII of the Inferno, the Francisian monk Guido I da Montefeltro recounts how he reluctantly gave advice to Boniface VII, only after Boniface had agreed to absolve him for the sin of his fraudulent counsel. As Guido recounts his story, after his death, St. Francis arrived to claim his soul for the saved, but a black Cherub appeared to assert Hell's superior claim over Guido.
