Historical Summary A.D.

   After waking from a dream - with a foggy recollection of details - it helps to focus on one event in order to recall the others. This summary timeline helps to perform a similar task [regarding world history] by highlighting a single event [Red Text] for each century in the last 2,000 years. [E.M.]

1st Century A.D.

1 A.D. Europe, 1 A.D. Birth / Jesus, 1 A.D. Mithraism, 9 Arminius, 10 King Cymbeline, 13 Roman Germany, 14 Roman Emperor Tiberius, 14 Germanicus, 26 John the Baptist, 29 Disciples Recruited, 30 1st "Pope" / St. Peter, 31 Fatality / John the Baptist, 33 Anointed / Jesus, 33 Arrest & Crucifixion / Jesus, 35 St. James / Glastonbury, 36 Meteor Shower, 37 Roman Emperor Gaius Caligula, 40 Saul of Tarsus, 41 Roman Emperor Claudius, 41 King Herod Agrippa I / Judea, 43 Paul the Apostle, 43 Roman Britian, 47 Fire / Alexandrian Library, 54 Roman Emperor Nero, 57 Japanese History, 60 Comet, 60 British Revolt, 64 Great Fire / Rome, 64 Christian Persecution, 66 Jewish Revolt / Jerusalem, 66 Gospel of Mark, 66 Flavius Josephus / Galilee, 67 Fatality / St. Paul, Fatality / "Saint Peter", 68 Fatality / Nero, 68 Roman Emperor Galba, 69 Roman Emperor Otho, 69 Roman Emperor Vespasianus, 70 Destruction / Jewish Temple, 70 Roman Palestine [Syria Palaestina], 71 Partial Lunar Eclipse, 72 Construction Begun / Roman Colosseum, 73 Masda Defeated, 74 Chinese Silk Trade, 77 Roman Britian, 79 Roman Emperor Titus, 79 Volcanic Eruption / Mount Vesuvius, 79 Updated / Hindu Calender, 80 Flavius Josephus / Rome, 80 Building Complete / Roman Colosseum, 81 Roman Emperor Domitian, 85 Coined Term / "Catholic", 95 Book of Revelations, 96 Roman Emperor Nerva, 98 Roman Emperor Trajan, 100 Final Forms? / Old & New Testaments, 100 Gentile Christianity, 100 Aksum Established / Northern Ethiopia

Commentary: At about 27 B.C. the Pantheon, a sacred building in ancient Rome dedicated to all the gods, was reportedly built. In Jerusalem, seven years later [20 B.C.], Herod the Great reportedly started rebuilding the Temple of Solomon. Symbols of Polytheism and Monotheism respectively, Roman and Jewish beliefs come to blows during the first century [70 A.D.] and the Jewish Temple is destroyed. The monotheistic faiths of Judaism and Christiaity are not inclined to worship a Pagan Emperor and, as a result, Jews and Christians are persecuted. [E.M.]   

2nd Century A.D.

100 A.D. Europe, 107 Roman Dacia, 114 Roman Armenia, 116 Jewish Rebellion, 115 Promulgation of "Virgin Mary" Cult / Irenaeus [Bishop of Lyon], 116 Jewish Rebellion / Cyrene, 117 Roman Emperor Hadrian, 121 Construction Begun / Temple of Venus, Rome, 122 Construction Begun / Hadrian's Wall, Britain, 125 Multiple Christian Gospels, 126 Rebuilt / Roman Pantheon, 131 Jewish Rebellion / Jerusalem, 132 Jewish Diaspora, 135 Roman Jerusalem, 135 Conception / Byzantine Empire, 135 Inauguration / Temple of Venus, Rome, 136 Christians vs. Nazarenes, 138 Roman Emperor Antonius Pius, 141 Building Finished / Temple of Venus, Rome, 150 Unpopularity / Nazarenes, 156 King Lucius / Britain, 160 Roman Retreat / Scotland, 161 Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, 165 Seleucia Burnt, 167 Marcomanni Invasion / Rome, 177 Christian Persecution, 180 Roman Emperor Commodus, 185 Super Nova, 193 Assassination / Roman Emperor Publius Pertinax, 193 Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, 193 Greatest Extent / Roman Empire

Commentary: Apparently, the Roman Empire and Christianity continued to grow in tandem during the second century A.D. In Jerusalem, the Jews that continued to rebel were either conquered, converted, or dispersed. [E.M.]   

3rd Century A.D.

200 A.D. Europe, 200 Mishnah Compiled, 207 Christian Persecution, 211 Roman Emperor Caracalla, 211 Near-Anarchy / Roman Empire, 212 Roman Citizenship, 230 Emperor Sujin / Japan, 235 Christian Persecution, 224 Sassanid Dynasty / Persia, 249 Roman Emperor Decius, 250 Goths / Balkan Peninsula, 250 Famine & Plague / Roman Empire, 250 Major Trading Center / Axum, 253 Roman Emperor Valerian, 267 Goths / Greece, 268 Roman Emperor Claudius II, 270 Roman Emperor Aurelian, 271 Wall / Rome, 284 Emperor Diocletian, 284 Divided / Roman Empire, 284 Christian Persecution

Commentary: Along with the persecution of Christians, the Roman Empire itself begins to suffer during this century. [E.M.]

4th Century A.D.

Europe, 300 Yamato Period / Japan, 300 Goths / Poland & Ukraine, 303 Christian Armenia, 303 Destruction / Christian Texts, 307 Declared "Protector of the Empire [Rome]" / Mithra?, 312 Roman Emperor Constantine I, 313 Edict of Milan, 313 Christian Bishops / Rome, 314 Jesus's Birthday Changed, 325 Council of Nicaea, 330 Roman Capital / Constantinople, 337 Constantine Dies / Three Sons Divide Empire, 350 Ostrogothic Poland & Ukraine, 350 Visigothic Dacia, 350 Western Migration / Hsiung-nu [Huns], 351 Roman Emperor Constantius II, 354 "Original Sin" Concept / Bishop Augustine, 361 Pagan Roman Emperor / Julian, 363 Roman Emperor Jovian, 364 West Roman Emperor Valentinian I, 364 East Roman Emperor Valens, 367 Formation / Christian New Testament, 374 "Church Leardership" Concept / St. Ambrose, 374 Huns Enter Europe, 375 West Roman Emperor / Valentinian II, 378 Battle of Adrianople, 379 East Roman Emperor Theodosius I, 379 Pagan Persecution, 380 Chandra Gupta II / India, 387 Burnt / Alexandria Library, 391 Pagan Rites Banned / Theodosian Decree, 393 Council of Hippo, 394 Termination / Olympic Games, 395 Roman Christianity, 397 Council of Carthage

Commentary: During the fourth century, Roman Emperor Constantine I was honored for establishing Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. He later moved eastward and founded Constantinople many miles from the Western Empire. Before the end of the fourth century, Roman Christianity would replace Roman Paganism - and the Huns enter Europe. [E.M.]

5th Century A.D.

400 A.D. Europe, 400 Visigoths / Italy, 400 Vanished? / Ancient World Literature, 400 Genesis Commentary, 405 Latin Bible [Vulgate] Completed, 406 German Gaul, 407 Roman Withdrawl / Britian, 409 German Spain, 410 German Rome, 410 Cassianite Order, 411 Neptune/Pluto Conjuction, 413 Triple Set of Walls / Constantinople, 418 Visigoths / Toulouse, 428 Vandals / North Africa, 432 Celtic Church / Ireland, 433 Attila the Hun, 436 Roman Withdrawl Complete / Britain, 439 German [Vandal] Carthage, 446 Germans / England, 448 Meroveus / Gaul, 449 Anglo Saxon Settlement / Britain, 451 Attila the Hun / Gaul, 451 German Victory / Catalaunian Plain, Gaul, 452 Attila the Hun / Italy, 452 Attila leaves Italy, 453 Fatality / Attila the Hun, 455 Vandals "Vandalize" Rome, 456 Jutes [Danes] / Kent, 466 Visigoth Kingdom / Peak of Power, 476 Fall / West Roman Empire, 477 Saxons / England, 480 Christian Monastaries, 481 Clovis / Gaul, 486 Frankish Victory / Soissons, 493 Catholic Franks, 495 Babylonian Talmud

Commentary: Contemporary with the last Neptune/Pluto conjunction in 84 B.C., Roman legions first entered Palestine [in 63 B.C.]. Nearly five hundred years later [411 A.D.] pagan tribes infiltrated the Roman Empire - from all sides! In the 5th century, after Attila the Hun had left Italy - and died, Roman Catholics began the conversion of Pagan tribes [beginning with the Franks]. [E.M.]

6th Century A.D.

500 A.D. Europe, 500 Saxons & Jutes / Southeastern Britain, 500 Franks / Northern Gaul, 500 Visigoths  / Southern Gaul & Spain, 500 Ostrogoths / Italy, 500 Vandals / North Africa, 500 Decline / Gupta Dynasty, 507 Clovis Defeats Visigoths, 511 France, 517 Pluto in Sagittarius, 525 Phoenix Cycle, 526 Decline / Ostrogothic Kingdom, 527 East Roman Emperor Justinian I, 529 Paganism Silenced, 534 Decline / Vandal Kingdom, 534 Roman Carthage, 546 Ostrogoths / Rome, 546 United Turks, 550 King Arthur, 552 Asuka Period / Japan, 552 Japanese Buddhism, 554 Ostrogoths / Driven out of Italy, 558 Bulgars / Constantinople, 566 The Dark Ages, 568 Visigoths / Spain, 569 Solar Eclipse, 570 Born / Muhammad, 572 Lombards Pour Over the Alps, 586 Catholic Visigoths, 589 Sui Dynasty / China, 591 Avars / Constantinople, 596 St. Augustine / Britain, 600 Catholic Lombards, 600 Celtic Christianity

Commentary: In the first century A.D., "Christianity" began to ascend Judaism as the most popular monotheistic religion in the West. In the 2nd century, Judaism declined and Rome grew to its greatest extent. In the 3rd century, Christianity continued to grow in spite of increasing persecution. In the 4th century, Roman-sponsored Christianity began its own form of persecution - against Pagans. In the 5th century, the Roman Empire began converting its enemies - to Catholicism. During the 6th century, Pagan and Papal politics contend for public popularity. Classic history calls this period the "Dark Ages." A time when "barbarian" hordes increasingly inundate the Roman Empire. [E.M.]

7th Century A.D.

Commentary: During the 8th century, the "Divine Right of Kings" was threatened by the spurious "Donation of Constantine" that declared the Roman Pope to be Christ's elected representative on Earth. [E.M.]

9th Century A.D.

800 Emperor Charlemagne, 800 Carolingian Renaissance, 814 King Louis I / France, 802 Saxon England, 814 King Louis I / Frankish Kingdom, 822 Muslim Spain, 840 Solar Eclipse, 840 Viking Raids / England, Ireland, Scotland, 843 Divided Frankish Kingdom, 845 Vikings / Paris, 850 Feudalism / Europe, 850 Hungarians / Ukraine, 871 King Alfred / England, 871?

Commentary: Germany, France, and Spain evolve during the 10th century. France [by virtue of the Pope] becomes home to the Holy Roman Empire. Later, Russia converts to Christianity. [E.M.]

11th Century A.D.

1000 Hinduism, 1000 Nibandhas / Hinduism, 1000 Calendar Hats / Europe, 1001 Declared Forgery / Donation of Constantine, 1004 Utah Villiages, 1008 Codex Leningradensis, 1022 Burning at the Stake / France, 1037 Seljuk Turks / Afghanistan & Iraq, 1054 Super Nova, 1054 Great Schism / Christianity, 1055 Seljuk Turks / Baghdad, 1060 Christian Crusades, 1063 Pluto in Pisces, 1066 Halley's Comet, 1066 Norman Conquest / England, 1070 Fall of Jerusalem, 1073 Pope Gregory the VII, 1089 Pluto in Aries, 1090 Assassins, 1095 Church-Controlled European Monarchies, 1095 Formal Beginning / Christian Crusades, 1095 Banking / Western Europe, 1095 Middle Ages, 1096 Peasants Crusade, 1096 Jews Escape to Poland, 1099 Christian Crusaders / Jerusalem

Commentary: During the Neptune/Pluto Conjunction in 411, the West Roman Empire saw a period of major change. During that period [5th Century], the Fall of the West Roman Empire was followed - not long after [6th Century] - by the Dawn of the Dark Ages. In the 10th and 11th centuries [about 500 years later] we find Norman France, the Holy Roman Empire, and the Christian Crusades helping to usher in the Middle Ages. [E.M.]
