The ticket is one-way. Things have softened - in this life and the Church's hereafter. Think of the most terrible possibilities (genocide, torture, famine) here on earth. As "hellish" as they are, one dies and it is over.

The Fear of Hell is a provocative study of two of the most powerful images in Christianity&-hell and the eucharist. Drawing upon the writings of Italian preachers and theologians of the Counter-Reformation, Piero Camporesi demonstrates the extraordinary power of the Baroque imagination to conjure up punishments, tortures, and the rewards of si. n the first part of the book, Camporesi argues that hell was a very real part of everyday life during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

The Fear of Hell book. In the first part of the book, Camporesi argues that the fear of hell, which prevailed in Europe over many hundreds of years, has now almost completely faded.

The papar intends an analysis of the early writings of Karol Wojtyła, which are essential to understand the subsequent development of his thought. Our thesis is that the core of Wojtyła's own philosophical and theological vision is already present both in his early literary works (poems and dramas) and in his doctoral thesis.

of lurid images, Camporesi shows how the geography and punishments of hell mapped the great changes of that century.

Perhaps in keeping with its subject matter, Camporesi’s style and content is flamboyantly Baroque. In spite of the title, his material is limited to Jesuit preaching in seventeenth century Italy.

According to Camporesi,a Professor of Italian Literature at the University of Pologna, Baroque Catholicism threatened its adherents with something unspeakably more fearsome than today's psychological provocations: the spectre and the fear of eternal punishment in "a slaughter-house, a torture chamber." There was the certainty of a wide variety of punishments: infections, muddy water, foul air, oozing sores, snakes, vicious dogs, fire, disorder, the gaping jaws of hideous beasts, heaps of mucus, feces, "an insatiably evil fever of cruelty," and, worst of all: no redemption possible. The ticket is one-way.
But what of Hell today? Camporesi asserts that it has all but disappeared, its once-fetid landscape gentrified, 'improved,' so that really, Hell has ceased to exist. Things have softened - in this life and the Church's hereafter. Think of the most terrible possibilities (genocide, torture, famine) here on earth. As "hellish" as they are, one dies and it is over.
What was the purpose of all this? There was a variety of goals. Keeping order was a major one, he asserts. "The Hell which was created by the Jesuits - the dominant model which would later influence the hells of other rival 'religions'- had been primarily conceived as a deterrent for the noble and high-class worlds, and designed to make the loathsome and disgusting smells of the the tomb waft up those large, refined noses." Camporesi further shows how so many conceptions of hell (and they changed over time, and within the Church) were often quite similar to how the poorest of the poor actually lived.
A second section discusses a preventative: the host. This section is less appalling, but relevant and interesting. "The mysterious food" was subject to thievery, intrigue, and large quantities of superstition. Camporesi covers all the angles.
This book is appalling and fantastic. Camporesi uses various sources, mostly Italian writiers and historians, and Dante's "Inferno," of course.
Anyone shocked that children are exposed to modern media violence will learn by reading this book that the Churchgot there first - hundreds of years ago. There was no V chip. Kids knew about hell, and it was much scarier than a night of "Cops," or R-rated films.
Definitely worth reading.
