Explore the ancient origins of the Christian conception of Heaven and Hell with the world's leading historians, archeologists and philosophers.
From the beginning of recorded history, people all over the world have believed in an afterlife. In the West, the powerful images of Heaven, with its white light, halos and harps, and Hell, marked by torture and pits of fire and brimstone, have shaped thought and culture for thousands of years.
But where do these images come from? What does the Bible itself tell us about eternal punishment and eternal happiness? And what do these dramatic symbols tell us about our own hopes and fears, our views of sin and redemption?
Search for answers to eternal questions and plumb the mysteries of Heaven and Hell with the world's leading historians, archaeologists and philosophers.
