Hello fellow zobopians, I have a nice treat for you.  Or, maybe you think this is a trick.  But hey…it’s about Hell; go figure!
___________________________________________________________________________

Dante’s Hell, associated with a particular class of wickedness:

In descending order the are Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, and Sloth, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery.

The deeper into Hell, both the torment and desperation increases.  Further down the abyss, each circle of Hell gets progressively smaller as the sin becomes more concentrated.  Contrary to the fire and brimstone image associated with Hell, Dante’s Inferno gets colder as one approaches the dark core where Satan resides.  The final circle, known as Cocytus, souls of the treacherous are embedded in a lake of ice with only their heads poking out.  Without motion, sinners cannot run from their torment.  Worst sinners don’t have even their heads free; they’re totally immersed in the ice — “like straws in glass”- condemned forever to freezing stasis.

“Hell is a place we make for ourselves.” —Dante Alighieri
