Disregarding that the dates have not actually changed (like Gregorian and Julian calendars) and they still use the same turning point (the supposed birth of baby Jesus) can someone explain why there is a switch?It also takes into account points problematic with the dating system.Shortly after the , Anno Domini was used officially under the reign of the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne (AD 742-814) and in the 11th century, it was adopted for official use by the Roman Catholic Church. This started in the 17th century, with the advent of the term Vulgar Era; this wasn’t because people considered it to be an age when everyone was coarse or rude, but because “vulgar” more or less meant “ordinary” or “common”, thus reflecting that the era was “of or belonging to the common people” (from the Latin vulgaris).The first documented instance of the (Vulgar Era, meaning “Common Era”) being used interchangeably with Anno Domini was featured in Latin works by Johannes Kepler in 1615, 1616, and 1617.Most notably, in the 8th century, the English monk Bede (now known as the Venerable Bede) used the dating system in his wildly popular (AD 731).

However, most Christians weren’t too fond of Diocletian, since he brutally persecuted them in the latter part of his reign in the late third / early fourth century.
