Limbo, the borders of hell, or hell itself: “talked of Satan and of L. and of Furies,” All's V, 3, 261. “as far from help as L. is from bliss,” Tit. III, 1, 149. Used for a prison: “he's in Tartar l., worse than hell,” Err. IV, 2, 32. “I have some of 'em in L. Patrum,” H8 V, 4, 67 (Limbus Patrum, in the language of ecclesiastics, was the place bordering on hell, where the saints of the Old Testament remained till Christ's descent into hell).*
