'''Anno Domini''' (Latin: "In the Year of the Lord"), abbreviated as '''AD''', defines an epoch based on the traditionally-reckoned year of the birth of [[Jesus]] of Nazareth. Similarly, '''Before Christ''' (from the Ancient Greek "Christos" or "Anointed One", referring to Jesus), abbreviated as '''BC''', is used in the English language to denote years before the start of this epoch. Some non-Christians use the abbreviations AD and BC without intending to acknowledge the Christian connotation. Some people prefer the alternatives '[[CE]]' and 'BCE', arguing that they are more neutral terms.
