Religion[edit]
  • Birth of Jesus, in the religion of Christians and Mormons, was conceived 25 March and born on 25 December, as assigned by Dionysius Exiguus in his anno Domini era; according to most scholars, Dionysius used the word "incarnation", but it is not known whether he meant conception or birth.[2][3] However, at least one scholar thinks Dionysius placed the incarnation of Jesus in the next year, AD 1.[2][3] Most modern scholars do not consider Dionysius' calculations authoritative, themselves placing the event several years earlier (see Chronology of Jesus).[4]


Significant people[edit]

Births[edit]

Albrecht Altdorfer's painting the Adoration of the Magi (made ca. 1530) is one of several works of art concerning the Navity of Jesus. Though Jesus's exact birthdate is unknown (other than it would have occurred sometime during this decade)[5]
