AD 735
Christ did in fact desend, with respect to his soul, to those in hell so that he might come to aid those for whom it was necessary.

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Foreseeing he (David) spoke of the resurrection of Christ. St. Peter shows them that the prophetical words of the Psalm, agree not to David in person, he being dead, and his body having remained in the grave, without rising from the dead. (Witham)

Gregory The Dialogist

AD 604
Again, His soul shall not be left in Hades, neither shall His flesh see corruption? "

John Chrysostom

AD 407
This again is wonderful: it shows that His resurrection was not like that of other men. For though death laid hold on Him, yet it did not its own work then.
