|Dante visiting the First Circle of Hell: limbo, where the souls of good pagans,|
like the ancient philosophers, enjoy a state of peace and natural happiness.

The doctrine of Limbo has been a subject of controversy for nearly seventy years. What is the state of those who depart this life with original sin only? Is it possible to maintain that no souls do depart this life in such a way? Intimately tied to the question of the 'natural desire for God' and to the dispute over the necessity of faith in Christ for salvation, Limbo occupies a strategically vital position in the theological landscape.
