A celestial waiting room where christians are punished so that they may atone for their sins before passing into heaven, as written in the Divine Comedy by Dante Algheri. Purgatory is very unlike hell in that it is simply temporary.
If you follow dante's reasoning, most people will spend at least some time in purgatory before they are allowed through the gates of heaven.
