In classical mythology, a place of blessedness and peace where everything was delightful, with soft green meadows, lovely groves, a delicious life-giving air and sunlight that glowed softly purple; the final resting place for the souls of the heroic and the virtuous.
This was the place where dwelt the great and good dead heroes, poets, priests, and all who had made men remember them by helping others. Their souls, having passed through all the transformations by which they become qualified both for fellowship with the gods and for reunion with the body, or in other words, being spiritualized and divinized, emerge from Hades in the mystic boat of the Sun, and unthinkingly turn its prow toward the Elysian Fields.
