- 0s BC
This article concerns the period 9 BC – 1 BC, the last nine years of the
1st century BC. Note that there is no year zero(0) in either the proleptic Gregorian calendaror Julian calendar. Hence 1 BCis followed by the year AD 1.
AD 1 is the first year of the
Anno Dominiera and of the Common Era. In 525 (the consulship of Probus Junior [Flavius Probus] ), a Christian monk named Dionysius Exiguusstated that the incarnation of Jesusoccurred 525 years earlier. [ [http://hbar.phys.msu.su/gorm/chrono/paschata.htm Nineteen Year Cycle of Dionysius] First Argumentum.] Whether Dionysius regarded "incarnation" as Jesus' birth or conception, and whether Dionysius placed it in 1 BC or AD 1 are debated by modern scholars. Nevertheless, these same scholars believe Jesus was actually born a few years earlier, during this decade.
