Stygiophobia: The Fear of Hell

Stygiophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of hell.  This phobia is closely related to Satanophobia, the fear of Satan.  Stygiophobia is also known as Stigiophobia and Hadephobia.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
