Please Note -The term BCE (before Christian era) will be used in place of B.C., and CE (Christian era) in place of A.D. These terms do not imply an acceptance of a particular faith. A similar issue arises with the widely held assumption, of 'C' (in BCE and CE) standing for 'common'. Many religions do not accept this dating as common as they have their own calendars.
