The Narrow Gate is the story of Galileo Galilei and his imprisonment by the Catholic Church during the Inquisition told with elegance and a sly sense of humor.
Though forced to recant his theories by the Off ice of the Inquisition to stave off threats to his family, Galileo's indomitable spirit and thirst for knowledge and truth triumph while exploring questions on the nature of the universe. Through the assistance of his servant and pupil, Katarina, Bishop Piccolomini and his friend, John Milton, he is able to complete his discourse on the two new sciences.
