Notes on The First Epistle of St. Peter the Apostle (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

3:19 Spirits that were in prison: See here a proof of a third place, or middle state of souls: for these spirits in prison, to whom Christ went to preach, after his death, were not in heaven; nor yet in the hell of the damned: because heaven is no prison: and Christ did not go to preach to the damned.
