If nothing existed but the Source and the Source - Created everything - Is the Creation from the Source? - If the Creation can behold intelligence - Then does the Source also have intelligence? - After all - The Source was far more than its Creation.

There were 7 levels of hell according to Dante's "Inferno"; and the concept of 7 hells is also seen on the Qeliphot, the inversed Tree of Life.

My guess would be that each Hell represents a different one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and they are merely a manifestation of the high end of the scale in each of those.

Yeah, it's Dante's Inferno... Although I'd say it's just a work of fiction, but nonetheless:
1st circle - Limbo, those who refused salvation (no punishment here).
2nd circle - The lustful (trapped in a storm).
3rd circle - The gluttons (trapped under mud and rain).
4th circle - The greedy (push rocks forever).
5th circle - The angry (forever fighting) and the lazy (drowning).
6th circle - The herectics (trapped in fire).
7th circle - The violent (I forgot what goes here)
And I just can't remember the 8th and 9th.

As for the seven sins, that's Dante's Purgatory.

Level 0 – Purgatory
You have escaped damnation and made it to Purgatory, a place where the dew of repentance washes off the stain of sin and girds the spirit with humility. Through contrition, confession, and satisfaction by works of righteousness, you must make your way up the mountain. As the sins are cleansed from your soul, you will be illuminated by the Sun of Divine Grace, and you will join other souls, smiling and happy, upon the summit of this mountain. Before long, you will know the joys of Paradise as you ascend to the ethereal realm of Heaven.
Level 1 – Limbo
Charon ushers you across the river Acheron, and you find yourself upon the brink of grief's abysmal valley. You are in Limbo, a place of sorrow without torment. You encounter a seven-walled castle, and within those walls, you find rolling fresh meadows illuminated by the light of reason, where about many shades dwell. These are the virtuous pagans, the great philosophers and authors, un-baptised children, and others unfit to enter the kingdom of heaven. You share company with Caesar, Homer, Virgil, Socrates, and Aristotle. There is no punishment here, and the atmosphere is peaceful, yet sad.
Level 2
You have come to a place mute of all light, where the wind bellows as the sea does in a tempest. This is the realm where the lustful spend eternity. Here, sinners are blown around endlessly by the unforgiving winds of unquenchable desire as punishment for their transgressions. The infernal hurricane that never rests hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine, whirling them round, and smiting, it molests them. You have betrayed reason at the behest of your appetite for pleasure, and so here, you are doomed to remain. Cleopatra and Helen of Troy are two that share in your fate.
Level 3
In the third circle, you find yourself amidst eternal rain, malefic, cold, and heavy. The gluttons are punished here, lying in the filthy mixture of shadows and of putrid water. Because you consumed in excess, you meet your fate beneath the cold, dirty rain, amidst the other souls that lay unhappily in the stinking mud. Cerberus, a canine monster cruel and uncouth with his three heads and red eyes, dwells in this level. He growls and tears at the damned with his teeth and claws.
Level 4
Just before the river Styx, is the Fourth Level of Hell. Here, the prodigal and the avaricious suffer their punishment, as they roll weights back and forth against one another. You will share eternal damnation with others who either wasted, lived greedily and insatiably, or who stockpiled their fortunes, hoarding everything and sharing nothing. Plutus, the wolf-like demon of wealth, dwells here.
Level 5
The river Styx runs through this level of Hell, and in it are punished the wrathful and the gloomy. The former are forever lashing out at each other in anger, furious and naked, tearing each other piecemeal with their teeth. The latter are gurgling in the black mud, slothful and sullen, withdrawn from the world. Their lamentations bubble to the surface as they try to repeat a doleful hymn, though with unbroken words they cannot say it. Because you lived a cruel, vindictive, and hateful life, you meet your fate in the Styx.
Level 6 - The City of Dis
You approach Satan's wretched city where you behold a wide plain surrounded by iron walls. Before you are fields full of distress and torment terrible. Burning tombs are littered about the landscape. Inside these flaming sepulchres suffer the heretics, failing to believe in God and the afterlife, who make themselves audible by doleful sighs. You will join the wicked that lie here, and will be offered no respite. The three infernal Furies stained with blood, with limbs of women and hair of serpents, dwell in this circle of Hell.
Level 7
Guarded by the Montour, who snarls in fury, and encircled within the river Phlegethon, filled with boiling blood, is the Seventh Level of Hell. The violent, the assassins, the tyrants, and the warmongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river, while centaurs armed with bows and arrows shoot those who try to escape their punishment. The stench here is overpowering. This level is also home to the wood of the suicides- stunted and gnarled trees with twisting branches and poisoned fruit. At the time of final judgement, their bodies will hang from their branches. In those branches the Harpies, foul birdlike creatures with human faces, make their nests. Beyond the wood is scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies. Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain, their tongues more loosed to lamentation and out of their eyes gushes forth their woe. Usurers, who followed neither nature nor art, also share company in the Seventh Level.
Level 8 – The Malebolge
Many and varied sinners suffer eternally in the multi-levelled Malebolge, an amphitheatre shaped pit of despair wholly of stone and of an iron colour: Those guilty of fraudulence and malice; the seducers and pimps, who are whipped by horned demons; the hypocrites, who struggle to walk in lead-lined cloaks; the barraters, who are ducked in boiling pitch by demons known as the Malebranche. The simonists, wedged into stone holes, and whose feet flames lick, kick and writhe desperately. The magicians, diviners, fortune-tellers, and panderers are all here, as are the thieves. Some wallow in human excrement. Serpents writhe and wrap around men, sometimes fusing into each other. Bodies are torn apart. When you arrive, you will want to put your hands over your ears because of the lamentations of the sinners here, who are afflicted with scabs like leprosy, and lay sick on the ground, furiously scratching their skin off with their nails. Indeed, justice divine doth smite them with its hammer.
Level 9 – Cocytus
This is the deepest level of hell, where the fallen angel Satan himself resides. His wings flap eternally, producing chilling cold winds that freeze the thick ice found in Cocytus. The three faces of Satan, black, red, and yellow, can be seen with mouths gushing bloody foam and eyes forever weeping, as they chew on the three traitors, Judas, Brutus, and Cassius. This place is furthest removed from the source of all light and warmth. Sinners here are frozen deep in the ice, faces out, eyes and mouths frozen shut. Traitors against God, country, family, and benefactors lament their sins in this frigid pit of despair.


From some online quiz thingy I took once that put you in a level of Hell. I kept the details as they were useful for a project...

I love that test Crowley. I'm so gonna find it again!

http://www.4degreez.com/misc/dante-inferno-test.mv
There we go, lovely.


"The wretched King Minos has decided your fate. His tale wraps around his body 8 times.
The sweet light no longer strikes against your eyes. Your shade has been banished to... the Eigth Level of Hell - the Malebolge! "

Level                  Who are sent there?           Score
Purgatory           Repenting Believers          Very Low
Level 1-Limbo        Virtuous Non-Believers        Very Low
Level 2                Lustful                            High
Level 3            Gluttonous                          High
Level 4         Prodigal and Avaricious               High
Level 5         Wrathful and Gloomy                   Extreme
Level 6-City of Dis    Heretics                            High
Level 7                 Violent                          Very High
Level 8-Malebolge Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers    Extreme
Level 9-Cocytus    Treacherous                    High

Well, I'm doing well for myself, aren't I?

My own personal summary of me (based on the two extremes and the very high, and the info they give on each level) in order of extremity of each part of me:
Level 8: Guilty of fraudulence and malice; the seducers and pimps, the hypocrites, the barraters, the simonists. The magicians, diviners, fortune tellers, and panderers are all here, as are the thieves. Indeed, justice divine doth smite them with its hammer.
Level 5: Wrathful and gloomy. Because you lived a cruel, vindictive and hateful life, you meet your fate in the Styx.
Level 7: The violent, the assasins, the tyrants, and the war-mongers lament their pitiless mischiefs in the river. This level is also home to the wood of the suicides. Beyond the wood is scorching sand where those who committed violence against God and nature are showered with flakes of fire that rain down against their naked bodies. Blasphemers and sodomites writhe in pain. Usurers, who followed neither nature nor art, also share company in the Seventh Level.

Pesronally I would have thought I'd have the violent one much higher, and the level 8 one lower. Perhaps swap those two and I'd be set. But, alas, as long as we realise I am evil. =P

I took that test, it was interesting, if not quite biased and with some oppressive qualities.  Very tradtional, I guess, but it was fun reading the result.

Sorry guys, Limbo has been officially chucked out. I've seen a couple of news articles making pathetic reasons why it shouldn't, and I really mean pathetic. Some go on how we live in a limbo when stuck waiting for something, making a decision, spiritual limbo etc. They don't realise that this is simple an official decision on something that never officially existed within the church doctrine.

Quote
[L]imbo, that netherworld of unbaptized babies and worthy pagans, is very much on the way out--another lesson that while belief in God may not change, the things people believe about him most certainly do.

This month, 30 top theologians from around the world met at the Vatican to discuss, among other quandaries, the problem of what happens to babies who die without baptism. What they were really doing, as theological advisers to Pope Benedict XVI, was finally disposing of limbo--a concept that was never official church doctrine but has been an enduring medieval theory of a blissful state among the departed, somehow different from both heaven and hell.

Unlike purgatory, a sort of waiting room to heaven for those with some venial faults, the theory of limbo consigned children outside of heaven on account of original sin alone. As a concept, limbo has long been out of favor anyway as theologically questionable and unnecessarily harsh. It is hard to imagine depriving innocents of heaven. These days it prompts more snickers than anything, as evidenced by the titter of headlines here along the lines of "Limbo Consigned to Hell."

Purgatory isn't a part of hell, it's a borderline; The Divine Comedy puts it above the 9th circle, the whole Inferno/Purgatorio/Paradiso thing is supposed to work like a mountain so Limbo is at the dead bottom, connected to earth (well, that can be argued, the story had no prologue).

None of it existed in the doctrine, Dante made it up. -_-

has anyone heard the song "the Inferno" by Robert W. Smith? It's based on the book the Divine Comedy and is quite exciting if I do say. All three movements takes nearly twenty minutes.
