I have read somewhere (reliable) that the current ” anno Domini” was a brainstorm of Bede the monk of Jarrow, in the (what we call) tub century. Until then, the years in Christiandom were counted from the creation. So it was year 6000 or something like that. But Bede split stuff into “BC” and “AD” . The creation numbering is found throughout the Christian world at that time. Other cultures had their own way of reckoning time, obviously.
