On our Lord's Descent into Hell

W—, London




Biblical Authority, Cosmology, Ancient Authorities

    Discussing the meaning of Christ's descent into hell observes: 'I shall not here urge that, in a philosophic sense, descent is as proper a term as ascent [...] but as all who know anything of the ancient Greeks will recollect, that they placed their Hades within, or as they would say, below the earth; so that circumstance may be supposed to have given rise to a common mode of expression on such subjects' (27).
