Mariusz Majewski, originally from Poland, is a seminarian in Mount Angel Seminary in Oregon. He will become a priest soon. The thesis which are presented here deal with very important problem of salvation, death and the question of hell. Mariusz refers to works by other philosophers and the bible to argue what is a nature of hell and whether the hell is eternal. I found his work fascinating and I asked him to share his thesis and he agreed. His thesis were of course accepted by the faculty of his univesrity as well as by a Commitee in Rome.
