Harrowing of Hell

The Harrowing of Hell (In Latin, Descensus Christi ad Inferos) refers to the descent of Christ's soul into Hell after his crucifixion. The painting depicts His resurrection, which brings salvation to all the righteous souls.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.

Apostolic Creed, Quoted from Vatican
