Hell has seven
Lodges, matching the seven Levels of Heaven. Medieval scholars worked
out the different kinds sinners allocated to each Lodge, and each
sub-section of each Lodge. Satan, naturally, is at the very bottom.
parts of Hell are ablaze with fire, Satan himself dwells in a frozen
lake of ice -- at least, according to the poet Dante.
Holy angels may
also be found in Hell, dealing out punishments, controlling operations
and keeping Satan and his minions in check. One such angel is Abaddon,
known as the Angel of the Abyss, who keeps the keys of Hell.
