Hell has long been, and still is, a source of foreboding and terror for many human beings.
What is the history and evolution of our ideas about Hell and the devil? How is Hell related to the earlier concepts of Sheol, Gehenna, Tartarus, and Hades? We will explore these dark themes in a multimedia presentation by the Jefferson Center's President, Roy Kindell.

Roy is a local public school educator and former board member of the National Center for Science Education. He is a graduate of the New York based Humanist Institute and has served in regional leadership positions with The World Future Society.
