Davy Jone’s Locker
Ever hear of Davy Jones Locker? You may be familiar with the term from the Disney franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean. But what is it really? Davy Jones’ Locker is a dimension to which souls are claimed by the sea, or devoured by the Kraken, were sent – according to myth. It is like the Catholic concept of purgatory. Davy Jones Locker is where souls must remain until their final judgment. It is a pirate’s and sailor’s idea of Hell.
The story of Davy Jone’s Locker started from a proprietor of a pub in Great Britain in the 1500s. The proprietor’s name was Davy Jones. The proprietor would shut inebriated seafarers into his beer locker when they could not pay their bar tab. Those indebted sailors would be sold as laborers onto pirate vessels. These indebted men, when they died at sea, were said to have gone to “Davy Jone’s Locker”.
