Summary: The new millennium forces us to reflect on systems for counting time and distinguishing historical eras. This exhaustive, authoritative study describes not only the origins and the early development of the Dionysian system of dating (named after Dionisius Exiguus), from its invention until its adoption throughout Western Europe in the course of the eleventh century, but also its antecedents in Late Antiquity and the general context in which this era was conceived. The result is a broad chronological and geographical survey, encompassing developments over a period of one thousand years in both Latin Christendom and the Byzantine East. This comprehensive survey is directed to both specialists and non-specialists and will be indispensable for any reader interested in early Christian chronology.

Inhaltsangabe: A detailed historical and technical analysis of the Christian era calendar from its creation in AD 525 by the Scythian monk Dionysius Exiguus, through changes in the Byzantine period, to its adoption by Western Europe during the 11th century. Declerq examines Dionysius' motives for creating a new calendar, primarily to calculate the date of Easter, and places it within the wider context of dating systems.
