     Anno Domini From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia AD redirects here. For other uses of Anno Domini , see  Anno Domini (disambiguation). For other uses of AD , see  AD (disambiguation).  Dionysius Exiguus invented  Anno Domini   years to date Easter .   Anno Domini inscription at Carinthiacathedral,  Austria.  Anno Domini   ( AD  or A.D. ) and Before Christ  ( BC  or B.C. ) are designations used to label or number years used with the Julian and Gregorian calendars. The term  Anno Domini   is Medieval Latin, translated as In the year of the Lord  , [1]  and as in the Year of Our Lord  . [2][3]:782  It is sometimes specified more fully as  Anno Domini Nostri Iesu (Jesu) Christi   ( In the Year of Our Lord Jesus Christ ). This calendar era is based on the traditionally reckoned year of the conception or  birth of  Jesus of Nazareth, with  AD  counting years from the start of this epoch,  and BC   denoting years before the start of the era. There is no year zero in this scheme, so the year AD 1 immediately follows the year 1 BC. This dating system was devised in 525, but was not widely used until after 800. [4]  The Gregorian calendar is the most widely used calendar in the world today. For decades, it has been the unofficial global standard, adopted for pragmatic interests of international communication, transportation, and commercial integration, and recognized by international institutions such as theUnited Nations and the Universal Postal Union. [5]  Traditionally, English followed Latin usage by placing the AD abbreviation before the year number . [6]  Since BC is not derived from Latin it is placed after the year number (for example:   AD 2014, but 68 BC). The abbreviation is also widely used after the number of a century or  millennium, as in fourth century AD or second millennium AD (although conservative usage formerly rejected such expressions). [7]  Because BC is the English abbreviation for  Before Christ  , it is sometimes incorrectly concluded that AD means  After Death , i.e., after the death of Jesus. However this would mean that the ~33 years commonly associated with the life of Jesus would not be present in either BC or AD time scales. [8]  There is consensus [9]  among modern scholars that the historical year of the birth of Jesus was around 6  – 4 Before Christ  . [10][11][12][13]  Terminology that is viewed by some as being more neutral and inclusive of non-Christian people is to call this the Christian, Current, or  Common Era(abbreviated as CE or C.E.), with the preceding years referred to as Before the Common, Christian, or Current Era (BCE or B.C.E.).  Astronomical year numbering and ISO 8601 avoid words or abbreviations related to Christianity, but use the same numbers for years AD
