For dates to be convertible to our modern calendar, they must relate to a fixed event.Years are reckoned by eras, which start at a fixed point in history.However, secular sources dated only to the later stages of antiquity, so all of the earlier dates in Ussher’s chronology came from his interpretation of the biblical text.Ussher probably is best known for his conclusion that the Creation Week began on October 23, 4004 BC.1 In most people’s minds, this is the source of the common belief among biblical creationists that the world is only about 6000 years old.The years preceding or following that point are numbered from that point.For example, the ancient Romans numbered their years from the founding of the city of Rome.
Attempts to date creation this way predated Ussher by at least 15 centuries.
James Ussher was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1581 and died in England in 1656.
He lived through a time of tremendous political and religious upheaval in his native Ireland and in England.
Five hundred years after Christ, a monk in Rome named Denys le Petit proposed that the birth of Christ be the fixed point or reference for the Christian era.
According to his careful research, le Petit felt Christ was born in the Roman year 753. Strange sounding, isn't it, that Jesus would be born "before Christ"?
Originally in Latin, the two parts were combined into a single English edition in 1658.
