    In this episode, we discuss the mysterious, shadowy figure of Hades (king of the Underworld), necromancy (the summoning of the dead), and Homer’s description of the abode of Hades in Book Eleven of the Odyssey and then comparing and contrasting that with the description found in Virgil’s Aeneid Book Six, all while taking a tour of the Underworld, its major features, and its inhabitants.
