Motivated by the recent detection of B-mode polarization of CMB by BICEP2 which is possibly of primordial origin, we study large �eld in ation models which can be obtained from higher-dimensional gauge theories. The constraints from CMB observations on the gauge theory parameters are given, and their naturalness are discussed. Among the models analyzed, Dante's Inferno model turns out to be the most preferred model in this framework.
