Comments¶ An influential and often reprinted treatise by Tobias Swinden (1659-1719) "which maintained that hell was a place and its torments eternal, and conjectured that it was located in the sun. Drawing on classical, scriptural, and patristic authorities it applied traditional Christian teaching concerning hell to a Copernican universe." - DNB.
