Purgatory: Is it Biblical? If not, what is its Origin?

I've heard of this concept before. I think it needs a full airing, given that it was raised in a recent post. To avoid stepping on the flow of the Universalism discussion, I ask it here:

  1. What is Purgatory?
  2. Where did it come from?
  3. Who's in charge of it?
  4. Where is it?
  5. Does Purgatory exist today?
  6. What qualifies one for purgatory?
  7. How and when is one release from Purgatory?
  8. Does the Bible teach it?

These and other questions can, and should, be asked of this subject. What is your understanding? CM
