Throughout the ages, man has contemplated the nature of life and death and the question of what happens to us after we die. In many cultures, it is believed that our souls survive in an afterlife, a paradise. Many cultures also, however, believe in a realm of punishment for those who do not achieve salvation. The idea of Hell is found in many belief systems, though in different iterations and with countless variations, even within a single faith. This book examines the various conceptions of Hell and its ruler (or rulers) in major religions of the world past and present including Ancient Greek, Buddhist, Shinto, and the three Abrahamic faiths. Additionally, it discusses the role of Hell in popular culture with specific attention to Dante's "Inferno," Rodin's "The Gates of Hell" and Bosch's "The Garden of Earthly Delights."Project Webster represents a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant, and informative books. To date, this content has been curated from Wikipedia articles and images under Creative Commons licensing, although as Project Webster continues to increase in scope and dimension, more licensed and public domain content is being added. We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge.
