I always thought Limbo, based on my knowledge of it from the Inferno, would been a pretty cool place to hang out. Imagine a poker game with Socrates, Abraham, and Caesar.
Limbo is traditionally held to be the place where the souls of children go if they die before they can be baptised and so freed from original sin.
It is also the fate of “holy people” such as the prophet Abraham who lived before the time of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe offered mankind redemption through his death and Resurrection.
What’s next on the chopping block, Purgatory? (Don’t even get me started on how weird that one looks to Protestants.)
