|Abstract|| An academic article about the prophetic expectations of a covenant-breaker group, Baha’is Under the Provisions of the Covenant, who claimed the world would end on April 29, 1980.|
|Notes|| See also a follow-up article, Fifteen Years of Failed Prophecy: Coping with cognitive dissonance in a Baha’i sect.|
The "Baha'i sect" discussed in this article is not affiliated with the Baha'i Faith, follows a different set of writings, and has been sued by the legal trademark holders for illegitimate use of Baha'i terms; see WIPO Domain Name Dispute: Case D2005-0214, "uhj.net". On whether the real Baha'i Faith has "sects," see The Covenant, Bahá'u'lláh's "Supreme Gift", Protects The Bahá'í Faith From Schism (offsite).
