This paper examines cosmological, ontological and theological concepts of the Babi and Baha’i religions that find symbolic expression in the structure and organization of the Badi‘ calendar. It traces the Shaykhi origins of the Bab’s cosmology and ontology, their development in the Babi scripture and finally their expression in and through the Badi‘ calendar. It also explores how the Bab used this new calendar to express the relationship between his own religious mission and the revelation of ‘Him Whom God shall make manifest’, the promised future Manifestation of God (‘Manifestations’ is Baha’i terminology for the founders of the worlds religions) repeatedly referred to in his writings.
