    The Descent of Christ into Hades. Orthodox Resurrection Icon. The Byzantine and old Russian icons of the Resurrection of Christ never depict the resurrection itself, i.e., Christ coming out of the grave. They rather depict 'the descent of Christ into Hades', or to be more precise, the rising of Christ out of hell. Christ’s preaching in hell. 1 Metropolitan Hilarion Alfeyev, Christ the Conqueror of Hell: The Descent into Hades from an Orthodox Perspective (St Vladimir’s Seminary Press, ). 2 Alfeyev, Christ the Conqueror of Hell, 3 Alfeyev, Christ the Conqueror of Hell, 4 Alfeyev, Christ the Conqueror of Hell,

    All these Christ wrested and snatched away from the devil, and bound him in hell.” Christ conquers Satan in His Passion, but he has conquered Him so many times before: when He cast out demons, when He forgave sinners, in the temptations in the desert, etc. Saint Robert Southwell, in his exquisite poem, “ New Heaven, New War,” even. We preach Christ crucified, and every sermon shakes the gates of hell. We bring sinners to Jesus by the Spirit's power, and every convert is a stone torn down from the wall of Satan's mighty castle. Yea, and the day shall come when everywhere the evil one shall be overcome, and the words of John in the Revelation shall be fulfilled.

      This descent into Hell as Christ’s victory corresponds to the teaching of our first Pope Saint Peter: Christ “proclaimed the Gospel even to the dead” (εἰς τοῦτο γὰρ καὶ νεκροῖς εὐηγγελίσθη, 1 Pet ). Jesus wasn’t burning in the flames! Jesus wasn’t in solitary sadness in the shadow of Sheol. Excerpt - "Christ the Conqueror of Hell" -- by Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) "As the last stage in the divine descent (katabasis) and self-emptying (kenosis), the descent of Christ into Hades became at the same time the starting point of the ascent of humanity towards deification (theosis).
