Julius Caesar.proper noun
full name is Gaius Julius Caesar, B.C.E. 100-44, Roman general, statesman and historian who invaded Britain (55), crushed the army of his political enemy Pompey (48), pursued other enemies to Egypt, where he installed Cleopatra as queen (47), returned to Rome and was given a mandate by the people to be ruler for life (45); as ruler, Caesar instituted many beneficial reforms. In the provinces he eliminated the highly corrupt tax system, sponsored colonies of veterans and extended Roman citizenship and in Rome he provided a new structure for the courts and increased the number of senate members; on March 15 of B.C.E 44, Gaius Cassius and Marcus Junius Brutus, who wanted to oust Julius Caesar and make the Roman Empire in their own form to be a parliamentary dictatorship and not the auspicious.monarchy Julius intended to establish for the benefit of all Romans, killed him as Caesar was entering the Senate house; Caesar's reform of the calendar gave Rome a rational means of recording time as the Julian calendar was introduced by him as well as the month of July after his name, inserted into their Roman calendar, the result of which we have today known as the Gregorian Calendar; that's also why we have, say, October as the 10th month of the year, when 'octo' means 8, as in octahedral and September meaning 7, from 'septem', now being the 9th month of the year, etc., because Augustus Caesar did the same; the egos and stupidity of leaders carries on today

God's calendar is shown by the turtle. Amtract Dictionary: The Hebrews months were lunar months, that is, from one new moon to another. These lunar months were each reckoned at twenty-nine days and a half or rather, one was of thirty days, the following of twenty-nine and so on alternately. That which had thirty days was called a full or complete month. That which had but twenty-nine days was called incomplete. The new moon was always the beginning of the month and this day they called new-moon day or new month. The Hebrews usually designated the months only as first, second, etc. and the names by which they are now known are believed to be of Persian origin and to have been adopted by the Israelites during the first captivity. At the exodus from Egypt, which occurred in April, God ordained that month, which was the seventh of the Egyptian civil year should be the first of the sacred year, according to which the ancient festivals they kept were to be reckoned.

Justin Martyr.circa 100-165 A.D., philosopher, theologian and one of the earliest apologists of the Christian church, who sought to reconcile Christian doctrine and pagan culture. He was born in Flavia Neapolis (now Nâbulus, West Bank), a Roman city built on the site of the ancient Shechem, in Samaria. As a young man Justin devoted himself to the study of Greek philosophy, notably the writings of Plato and the Stoic philosophers. Justin first encountered Christianity in Ephesus. After his conversion he went to Rome, where he established a school. He died in Rome as a martyr during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius. The books that are ascribed to Justin with certainty are the two.Apologies for the Christians, which comprise an erudite defense of Christians against charges of atheism and sedition in the Roman state and the.Dialogue with Trypho the Jew, which professes to be the record of an actual discussion at Ephesus. The Apologies.were addressed to Emperor Antoninus Pius, but they were intended primarily for the educated public of the provinces. Their central theme is the divine plan of salvation, fulfilled in Christ the Word. In Justin's view, Christianity was the final revelation toward which Greco-Roman philosophy had gradually been moving. He was the first writer of the early church to introduce philosophical terminology into the discussion of Christian teachings. Although Justin was not an original thinker, his works are valuable for the information they give about the 2nd-century Christian church.....comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
