BC: Before Christ AD: Anno Domini (After Christ/Latin) BC stands for "Before Christ", AD stands for "Anno Domini" which is medieval latin for "in the year of (the) Lord" - not After Death! Interestingly, there was no year zero - the calendar goes straight from 1 BC to 1 AD.

BC is the English word for Before ChristAD is the English word for after christ (Anno Domini)if you want to say BC in other languages you must use different words.In Italy BC is AC (Avanti Cristo=Before Christ) and AD is DC (Dopo Cristo= after Christ) and you know that Italian is a language that comes from latinBC is actually a term implemented by modern society- but AD was started by the Romans.

BC, because that means "before Christ". So 250 years BC is 250 years before Christ was born. AD means anno Domini, or "after death" (of Christ). The year 77 AD is 77 years after christ died. This year is 2008 AD.

BC = Before Christ AD = Anno Domini (after the birth of Christ)

BC= Before Christ. Everything before the birth of Christ is recorded with a BC after it. For example, Stonehenge was built in 3500 BC. This means Stonehenge was built 3500 years before the birth of Christ AD= Anno Domini. This is latin for After Christ. All dates after the birth of Christ are recorded with an AD after it. For example, this is the year 2011 AD. This means this year is 2011 years after the birth of Christ

BC stands for Before Christ, and AD stands for Anno Domini. BC comes first than AD.

BC means before Christ and AD stands for Anno Domini (year of the lord). BC is before the birth of Christ and AD are the years after the birth. People often use BC as Before the Common era and CE for Common Era (CE). Not all people are christian.
