One of many artistic representations of Hell

In many religions, Hell is a form of afterlife where the souls of mortals who have committed grievous sins are sent to suffer for their transgressions in life. It is often said to be a realm inhabited by demons and ruled over by a Devil, who are tasked with punishing the wicked by dispensing great suffering and torment.


Hell has been imagined in a variety of ways by various faiths, mostly as a place of nightmarish horrors. One common perception of this underworld is that of a dark, barren plain standing amidst a lake of fire where human souls are constantly tortured by demons. Another concept of Hell, described in Dante's Divine Comedy, is that of a realm split into different layers and souls are divided amongst the different circles and endure different punishments depending on their sins in life.
