 Is limbo in limbo? Vatican meeting of theologians discusses its dismantling - Catholic Online
Limbo, never officially defined by the church, was a theological concept developed in the Middle Ages that said unbaptized babies would spend eternity in a state of "natural happiness," but would not enjoy the perfect communion with God that comes through baptism into Jesus Christ.
The limbo of the Fathers (“limbus partum”) was the place or state of the just who died before Christ but could not reach the beatitude of heaven before his descent among the dead and his ascension.
The limbo of children, which alone became important in Christian tradition, is the place or state of infants or adults who never had the use of reason who, once Christ had come, did not receive baptism and the incorporation in the church that it brings.

Limbo has never been a formally defined doctrine of the faith, but rather is a theological opinion used to harmonize (a) the necessity of Baptism; (b) God’s universal salvific will (cf.
Thomas (1224-74) taught that in limbo there would be a pain of loss (i.e., the effect of not experiencing the beatific vision), but not the pain of sense (i.e., they experience natural beatitude rather than the torments of hell).
Limbo seems to have disappeared, purgatory has slipped into limbo, hell is left unmentioned, except perhaps for terrorists and infamous criminals, while heaven is the final and universal human right; or perhaps just a consoling myth.

 The Mavens' Word of the Day
The phrase in limbo came directly from Latin in the fourteenth century; the preposition in was mistakenly thought to be English, and the Latin noun limbus, meaning 'border or edge', came into English in the ablative form limbo.
Limbo was used in transferred senses by the end of the sixteenth century.
Limbo can also be 'a place or state of oblivion for persons or things cast aside': "At length they drew breath, let the argument fly away into the limbo of other good arguments...

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Abortion And Limbo
They held that the "Limbo of infants" is the state or "place" where unbaptized babies and those who die in original sin are deprived of the Beatific Vision of God but share a perfect state of natural happiness.
That Limbo does not appear in the recent Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) is not a compelling argument against the existence of Limbo.
Thus, a Limbo for the unbaptized unborn and born infants continues to be held as worthy of belief in the Church, but in the mercy of God perhaps not all unbaptized infants go there.

Limbo is the powerful and disturbing story of Pharaoh Chisholm's cultural isolation and displacement when he and his family migrate from the multicultural mecca of Los Angeles, to Trondheim, a small, homogenous city hidden between fjords in the middle of Norway.
One year after the birth of their beautiful daughter, Amaryllis, Pharaoh's tempestuous relationship with a wayward father and an ambitious, proud, but childless sister deteriorates further as they are left behind with no one to fill Amaryllis's void.
Pharaoh not only has to confront the racial antagonism that is left behind, but must also struggle with a deep fear and paranoia in a society that represses individuality and brings him to the brink of simmering rage which feeds and disguises the intense love he has for his daughter.

 Limbo
Some later writers gave the name "limbo" (named after the limbo for un baptized infants who died) to this place where Jesus descended that the Creed calls "hell" (which, of course, is not the hell or inferno of the damned).
The existence of limbo for unbaptized infants is not part of divine revelation, but rather was and is an educated theological "guess." The term was coined by St. Augustine of Hippo and literally means "fringe." This came about because God has not chosen to reveal what happens to deceased unbaptized infants.
This he called "limbo." Other theologians say that God's "universal salvific will" (1 Timothy 2:4) includes unbaptized people who do not have the use of reason when they die and that they enjoy supernatural happiness by some means we do not now know.

 BBC NEWS | Magazine | How can limbo just be abolished?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Many Catholics would see the abandonment of limbo as a good thing - there is little doubt that some interpretations of the teaching may have caused untold misery to the millions of parents whose children have died without being baptised.
Some argue that the question of limbo has taken on fresh urgency because it could be hindering the Church's conversion of Africa and Asia, where infant mortality rates are high.
I may be ignorant of the details of the Catholic religion, but it seems to me that if limbo is abolished then the default for unbaptised infants would be that they go to hell (as they did before the "theological hypothesis of limbo" was introduced).

 Limbo Movie Review by Anthony Leong   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The setting for "Limbo" is Alaska, America's 'last frontier', where the undisturbed tranquility of nature is juxtaposed against the numerous tourist-laden cruise ships that sail through its numerous inlets.
"Limbo" is a film that dwells on 'unexpected outcomes', and true to this thematic subtext, Sayles has deliberately structured his film in a most unexpected manner.
How fitting it is that given their cheerless outlook on their own troubled lives, that they are collectively placed in circumstances where their very survival depends on possessing a positive viewpoint and a renewed sense of hope.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Limbo
It is true, on the other hand, that some Catholic theologians have stood out for some kind of compromise with Augustinianism, on the ground that nature itself was wounded and weakened, or, at least that certain natural rights (including the right to perfect felicity) were lost in consequence of the Fall.
But these have granted for the most part that the children's limbo implies exemption, not only from the pain of sense, but from any positive spiritual anguish for the loss of the beatific vision; and not a few have been willing to admit a certain degree of natural happiness in limbo.
Thus the Council of Florence, however literally interpreted, does not deny the possibility of perfect subjective happiness for those dying in original sin, and this is all that is needed from the dogmatic viewpoint to justify the prevailing Catholic notion of the children's limbo, while from the standpoint of reason, as St.

 The Limbo Programming Language
A quick glance at the program reveals that the syntax of Limbo is influenced by C in its expressions, statements, and some conventions (for example, look at lines 13-14), and also by Pascal and its successors (the declarations on lines 4, 6, 9).
Expressions in Limbo are not reordered by the compiler; values are computed in accordance with the parse of the expression.
Limbo implementations guarantee to destroy all data objects not involved in such circularity immediately after they become non-referenced by active tasks, whether because their names go out of scope or because they are assigned new values.
