What happened in the year 0 AD? Well, actually there is no year 0; the calendar goes straight from 1 BC to 1 AD, complicating the process of calculating years. Most scholars believe that Jesus was born between 6 and 4 BC (Before Christ) and that he died between 30 and 36 AD (Anno Domini, latin for “in the year of the lord”).
When did the year 0 start? There is no year 0. Jesus was born before 4 B.C.E. The concept of a year “zero” is a modern myth (but a very popular one). In our calendar, C.E. 1 follows immediately after 1 B.C.E. with no intervening year zero.
What was the year before 0 AD? No year zero: start and end of a century
In the AD year numbering system, whether applied to the Julian or Gregorian calendars, AD 1 is immediately preceded by 1 BC, with nothing in between them (there was no year zero).
Is the year 0 BCE or CE? The dating system was invented by Dionysius Exiguus in AD 525. The dating system was invented by Dionysius Exiguus in 525 CE. By the way, there is no year 0 in the anno Domini dating system. The year 1 BCE immediately precedes the year 1 CE.
