Gateway to hell

Gateway to hell

If you are looking for the highway to hell, your search is over. The Australian reports that Italian archeologists believe they have found it in southwestern Turkey.

An ancient cave called Plutonium, believed to be the portal to Hades in Greek and Roman myth, was uncovered at the ancient site of Hierapolis.

“This is an exceptional discovery as it confirms and clarifies the information we have from the ancient literary and historic sources, Alister Filippini, a researcher in Roman historian at the University of Palermo, Italy told Discovery News.

The new discovery features a temple, a pool, and multiple steps that once descended into the hell.

The temple was believed to be in use until the 6th century when it was destroyed by Christians.

Now if only they can find the road paved with good intentions.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
