- Heaven is a belief in many philosophies in Daventry.
Death fascinates men the world round, and there are as many philosophies about what comes after this life as there are, it seems, lives which end. Heaven is just one of these beliefs.
While little is known about heaven or the heavens of Daventry, they are occasionally mentioned. It is alluded to being a place where those who die with a pure heart go to rest. Blessings are bestowed on the living from heaven.
Many people believe those living in heaven such as God and Christ look down upon those on the world protecting and watching over them. It also associated with being the home of angels. Heaven is sometimes mentioned in plural suggesting that there are several. One such heaven is Mount Olympus. It is said that Prometheus stole fires from heaven (Mount Olympus). In revenge Zeus created Pandora and Pandora's Box.
It is sometimes referred to as Angelville.
