Why Did Dante Title His Work The Divine Comedy?

Why Did Dante Title His Work The Divine Comedy?
I know the church used his depictions of hell as doctrine, but the title seems to suggest that he had a different purpose in mind entirely.
The god who allows children to be raped out of respect for the free will choice of the rapist, but punishes gay men for engaging in mutually consensual sex couldn't possibly be responsible for an intelligently designed universe.

I may defend your right to free speech, but i won't help you pass out flyers.

Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
--Voltaire

Nietzsche isn't dead. How do I know he lives? He lives in my mind.
