Beatrice Stones, are special items located throughout Hell in yellow fountains used to upgrade the Cross. By obtaining three stones the player gains the ability to Auto-Absolve the Damned, skipping the sin-catching mini-game at the cost of forfeiting any possible souls. There are actually more than three spots to find the Beatrice Stones allowing players to bypass one and still get all three in one play-through. If the player starts a new game in Ressurection mode, all stones collected carry over. The fountains that previously containing collected stones grant the player souls.

Anger: After seeing Virgil for the second time and fighting the proceeding battle with Fire Guardians, Anger Minions and Temptresses. At the very end of the rope ahead, after dropping down next to a mana fountain.
