He descended to the dead

In paintings of The Harrowing of Hell, Christ has broken the doors and tramples on death (or a devil) as He leads out people like Adam and Eve, Noah, Moses, and Rachael.

Christ, standing on broken doors, tramples death and leads people out of Hell.

The Harrowing of Hell, by Fra Angelico

“Satan never saw it coming. Christ bound the strong man, raided his house, and liberated the captives.”
