Generation 50

This is the period that spans from the Diaspora of the Jewish nation to the start of its spiritual redemption with the era of Nahmanides, Maimonides, the Kabbalah, and other Sages. The 7 periods of 120 years each cover up to Hebrew Year 5040, so about 1280 CE. The end of this period signals the turn into the last millennium.
