Sunday pick: A Door to Hell


Dear Reader,

ancient people used to believe that you could reach Hell through certain points on our planet. One of them is located in Italy close to Cumae town. Lake Averno.
Because the lake used to be a volcano, the crater fumes prevented many forms of life to survive, ergo the belief that hell was just underneath. Greek myth further developed the existence of the sybille and other inferno priests, but more on that in my next post.
