(Man who rose from the dead) : In the company of a guide Anonymous 362 saw the dead. The guide explained that he had seen a valley where souls were purged and a pit that was the mouth of Hell, as well as a place of rest where those who had done good, though less than Faith required, could look upon the kingdom of Heaven. The guide urged Anonymous 362 to correct his habits, words and deeds. He then found himself suddenly clothed in the flesh.
