The Greek song tells of a lover’s despair, describing the doorstep of their beloved as at the same time the best and the worst place for them to be in this life. To convey the powerful feelings, the songwriter borrows the imagery of Paradise and Hell, the Christian account of the permanent post-mortem destinations of the human soul.2 This imagery, still an important part of Western cultural and religious baggage today, has fascinated people over the centuries since the emergence of the Christian faith. This publication explores a significant part of that fascination, pertaining to the Christian place of eternal punishment for the souls of sinners: Hell.
