I think it's a bit more than "a tradition." It's based pretty solidly on this
bit of Scripture (from 1 Peter 3; it bridges from vv18b through 20a):
He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,
through whom[d] also he went and preached to the spirits in
prison who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently
in the days of Noah while the ark was being built.
You probably do not want to know what that odor is.
