Gehenna

Additional Links

The modified name of a valley, the site of which is sought to the west and south of Jerusalem. It became the scene of idolatrous rites by fire as well as, it is thought, the place for burning refuse and the corpses of outcasts. The name is used invariably by Our Lord to designate Hell, the abode of the damned, where "the fire is not extinguished" (Mark 9).
