Abstract: Since man is never absolutely good he is liable to be under continuous judgement as an affirmation or negation of the identity of his actions. Ifman's actions are acceptable by authority he receives a rewarding judgement, if unacceptable a punishing judgement. However, the evil-doer has a chance to expiate his crimes. The concept of expiation is related to judgement for purification, an idea that finds its way in both Plato and Dante
