Gnawing worms, unquenchable fire, utter darkness, weeping and gnashing of teeth. With these fearful words, Jesus warned that hell is real…and that we could end up there.

Since the Early Church, Catholic saints and other visionaries have reported horrific scenes of eternal punishment. Dozens of saints throughout history have described the terrors of Hell, and relayed the horror of being separated from God for eternity so that we may see for ourselves and repent.

In Saints Who Saw Hell, you’ll find …

  • The scriptural witness to the reality of hell, including the warnings of Jesus, the prophets, and the Apostles
  • Scenes from the second-century Apocalypse of Peter, the oldest surviving Christian vision of hell
  • Ancient reports collected by Pope St. Gregory the Great
  • Medieval accounts from St. Bede, the voyage of St. Brendan, St. Hildegard of Bingen, St. Catherine of Siena, and St. Frances of Rome
  • Witnesses to hell from the time of the Catholic Reformation, such as St. Teresa of Avila, Blessed Maria de Agreda, and Blessed Richard of St. Anne
  • Visions from later centuries, such as those of St. Veronica Giuliani, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, St. John Bosco, the children of Fatima, and St. Faustina Kowalska
  • And other accounts from those who have witnessed the fate of the damned

The scenes in these pages, varying in detail and source, all testify to one harrowing truth: hell is the final guarantee that what we do really matters.

For us here on earth, a peak at the grisly tortures of hell is sometimes what we really need to redouble our efforts at achieving the glorious sweetness of heaven.

    Five months ago I read every book I could find on Hell. Thigpen's was the best. It's not that his research was all that different from the others. But his arrangement of the information was so easy to follow. I bought copies for everyone who may want a copy. Or may need a copy.

    Saints on hell

    Posted by Scott Dodge on Jan 27th 2024

    In a time when glib universalism seems to abound, this book is a much-needed look at Catholic mystical tradition as it pertains to hell. A good and timely read.

    Diabolical influence

    Posted by Aderly Roman on Jan 22nd 2024

    The book is very interesting. You have to sometimes read between the lines but it covers me well rounded area of hell and what you can avoid so that no one will ever be there. I hope overall, the book is fantastic.

    I need to order another copy.

    Of all your books on Hell, this one is the best. It's easy to read, believable, and answers those who argue that no one has come back from Hell to tell what it is like. Many have. It also shows what a lie #297 of Amoris Laetitia is which denies that anyone goes to Hell.

    A Riveting Exploration of the Reality of Hell

    Posted by Jerome Carrillo on Nov 3rd 2023

    I appreciated this book for offering a vivid portrayal of what the hell is like. It revealed aspects of hell I hadn't considered before, and at times, it was genuinely disturbing. I would recommend it, especially to those who may be skeptical about the reality of hell. The personal accounts shared by individuals who experienced it firsthand were particularly compelling. Highly recommended!
