' It has also been widely used to refer to 1905, about Albert Einstein. The annus mirabilis is often called the "miraculous year" in English, or in German, the "Wunderjahr" ("wonder-year"). ', this has been removed... The term has existed for nearly 350 years -- conjecture how many 'anni mirabiles' have occurred since then... The mention of Einstein is a mere trifle -- you scientific wikipedians disgust me. -- Nalco 17:10, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Reinstated. Einstein's contribution is way more important, and of worldwide scope, than a fire that is a mere footnote in even the most parochial of British history books. In any case, the term has existed for more that two thousand years, since it's not a neologism but perfectly fine Latin. (talk) 13:17, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
