Adamic Cycle
___________________
The period of time, approximately six thousand years, beginning with the revelation of Adam and ending with the Declaration of the Báb. Also called the 'Prophetic Era', the Adamic Cycle included a series of successive divine revelations which gave rise to the religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Declaration of the Báb in 1844 marked the end of the Adamic Cycle and the beginning of the 'Bahá'í Cycle' or 'Era of Fulfillment'.
[BD 9]
___________________
Cycle “stretching back as far as the first dawnings of the world's recorded religious history …” and ending with the Dispensation of the Báb.
[BG 6]
