Bahá'í Cycle
___________________
A period of time beginning with the Declaration of the Báb, including the Bahá'í Dispensation (the Bahá'í Era) and extending beyond it into the future, to include the dispensations of future Manifestations of God who shall be under the shadow of Bahá'u'lláh. In a letter interpreting a Zoroastrian prophecy, 'Abdu'l-Bahá described the Bahá'í Cycle as lasting 'at least five hundred thousand years'.8 The Bahá'í Cycle is also called by Shoghi Effendi the 'Era of Fulfilment', which succeeded the 'Prophetic Era' or 'Adamic Cycle'.
[BD 35]
