An spiritual region where certain classes of souls were supposed to await the last judgment. [1913 Webster
" The limbus patrum was considered as a place for the souls of good men who lived before the coming of our Savior. The limbus infantium was said to be a similar place for the souls of unbaptized infants. To these was added, in the popular belief, the limbus fatuorum, or fool's paradise, regarded as a receptacle of all vanity and nonsense."
"As far from help as Limbo is from bliss."
"A Limbo large and broad, since called
The Paradise of fools."
