Some civilizations used BCE and CE which stand for "Before Common Era" and "Common Era"
(Not strictly true. CE and BCE are "politically correct" modern innovations, concocted so that Jews and other non-Christians don't feel left out. No previous civilization has ever used them. After all, the Christian Era was not the "common" era until Christianity became dominant in the West.)YearsDifferent civilisations used different methods. The Romans named them after the consuls who ruled in that year, eg The year of Julius and Pompey, the Greeks may have named the year after the victor of the 100m sprint in the Olympics
Rome also reckoned time from the supposed foundation of the City in 753BC, so 3BC would have been 750AUC (Anno Urbis Conditae)
The Greeks also sometimes reckoned from the beginning of the Olympics, supposedly in 776BC, so 356BC (when Alexander the great was born) would have been the first year of the 106th Olympiad.
Anno Domini (In the Year of our Lord)
BC is used to refer to dates before the birth of Jesus and AD to the dates after His birth Answer BC= Before Christ AD= Anno Domini
BC is before AD (Before Christ) (After Death)
BC : before Christ AD : anno domino
BC, before Christ came before AD, anno domini
AD is after and BC before
BC comes before AD on a timeline. BC or BCE means before common era, AD means "In the year of Our Lord."BC first AD after
AD - Anno Domini BC - Before Christ
No, it's the other way around: BC then AD
BC - Before Christ AD - Anno Domini
BC comes first as in Before Christ, AD is Anno Domini or after Christ
BC: Before Christ. Used for years before the birth of Jesus Christ AD: Anno Domini. Used for years in the reign of the christ. The current year, for instance, is really 2013 AD
ad=after death bc=before christ this is how i remember it
BC is "before Christ" and AD "anno domini"
AD stands for "anno Domini" BC stands for "before Christ"
BC stands for before Christ. AD would stand for after death of Christ.
AD followed BC. BC stood for Before Christ, and AD after him (Anno Domini, "year of our lord").Note that this means 1 BC was immediately followed by 1 AD, with no "zero year" between them.
Yes BC= Before Christ and AD= Anno Domini (Year of our Lord)
I think it means After Death, AD, and Before Christ, BC.
BC stands for before Christ and AD stands for after death.
I was taught that BC means Before Christ, and AD means After Death.
BC is first as Before Christ. AD comes after as Anno Domini
I belive that AD comes first then there are BC.
BC is the time before jesus christ was born therefore BC is BEFORE CHRIST and AD refers to the time after christ was born
2010 BC is 4019 years before AD 2010.
