The Gate: Dawn of the Baha’i Faith
In the midst of religious intolerance and extremism, one religion—the Baha’i Faith—offers a path toward world peace by advocating the oneness of humanity’s major religions. Now, this groundbreaking documentary tells the amazing, little-known story of the origins of the Baha’i Faith.
The Gate: Dawn of the Baha’i Faith recounts the founding of this new world religion in Persia by a Prophet known as The Báb. In the mid-1800s, Jews, Christians and Muslims alike were awaiting the imminent arrival of a Divine Messenger. Beginning in 1844, the Báb’s message, which included then-controversial ideas like the oneness of major religions and the empowerment of women, spread like wildfire across the region amidst this religious climate.
However, His groundbreaking new message presented a threat to religious and political leaders of the time, resulting in relentless persecution of the Báb and His followers. The Báb’s message ultimately triumphed with a growing number of faithful; today, the Baha’i religion is practiced throughout the world by over five million people.
Combining dramatic reenactments with interviews of renowned historians, religious scholars and Baha’i Faith experts, The Gate: Dawn of the Baha’i Faith celebrates the brief, exciting life of a prophet and the indelible impact His message continues to have on the world today.
