This podcast was recorded at Nottingham’s Victoria Centre Market on 31 January 2017. I am in conversation with Jonathan Sharp, and we talk about Limbo. Both Limbo the dance and Limbo the spiritual dimension. The religious aspect of Limbo the no longer exists, it was dissolved by Papal decree in 2007. Traditionally Limbo Land was a place between Heaven and Hell created for children who died before baptism.

The concept of purgatory is a process not a place, so Jonathan may well be correct in his assumption that hell is on Earth. Augustine’s opinion negates the idea of unbaptised children condemned to punishment in Limbo, he decreed children relegated to Limbo enjoyed a real happiness. So no problems if you were concerned about the unbaptised souls. There is still interesting comparisons to Limbo refugee souls, and the terrible plight of the millions of displaced humans surviving in refugee camps. It seems the world’s leaders are beginning close the gates of heaven and hells, and the millions who live in refugee limbo have no chance of a Papal decree to save them. In the meantime, they live in purgatory.
