The fourth circle of Dante’s version of Hell is Greed. Here, sinners who obsess with acquiring material possessions at the cost of others are punished. In Greed, the sinners are weighed down and crushed by the combined wealth in existence over and over again. Also, they can be boiled alive in cauldrons of molten gold over and over again.
