Etymology[]

Hades (ᾍδης, Hā́idēs) is the Greek god of the underworld, as well as the name of the underworld itself. Despite many modern portrayals, in ancient Greek religion and mythology, though respected and feared in equal measure, Hades was not represented as evil, only just and resolute. In Christianity, the same Greek name is either translated into English as Hell or simply transliterated as "Hades" in the Bible. The Greek term is used to translate the Hebrew term Sheol in almost all instances in the Septuagint and appears in the New Testament.
