  •  Of course there are other versions of Hell (0+ / 0-)

    in many religions, ranging from deadly dullness to raging torment. Odysseus/Ulysses visits the dead Greek heroes from the Trojan War in the Odyssey. The Mayan Popul Vuh is quite detailed about Xibalba. Buddhism and Hinduism have a wonderful selection of Hells, although we don't hold with the barbaric eternal torment nonsense. There are, as it happens, even Christians who believe that Hell will be emptied out some time in the distant future, and the Devil himself will repent and return to Heaven.
