Abstract There were four epochs from 1844 to 1944 and a precursor period which, here, I define as 1743 to 1843. The poetry in this document is related to that century before the declaration of the Bab.
Notes Shaykh Ahmad was born at some time in the period 1743 to 1753 and he died in 1826 with Siyyid Kazim becoming the leader of the Shaykhi Movement until the Siyyid's death on the last day of December in 1843 five short months short of the Bab's declaration in Shiraz in 1844.

The years 1744-1844 were a century of massive social, intellectual, religious and political change in western history. The following prose-poems bring together many of the happenings in that century focusing on these great precursors of the Babi Revelation and integrating their lives into an understanding of that critical century, 1744-1844, as well as our own lives and times.
