religious cannon


Senior Member

I am watching documentary series called "True Monsters"
And a author was talking about Satan and Dante's Hell (Divine Comedy)
He said ;
" He creates this elaborate hell, and then, you know, a thousand years later we’re all taking this as kind of religious cannon "

"He " means Dante, but I don't understand what "religious cannon" mean.
Would someone explain please?

Thank you!

    Cannon is a misprint. It should be canon. If you look up canon in any dictionary, and still have questions, please post them here. (You want the first definition of canon in the WRF dictionary linked from the top of this page.)
