Anno Mundi Reference List

‘Creation of the World and Expulsion from Paradise’

Anno Mundi is Latin for ‘in the year of the world’ (1). It may be abbreviated as ‘AM’, or ‘Year After Creation’. There have been many Anno Mundi datings. I have compiled a list of some of the important ones.

The names of the calculators in chronological order by date of birth from oldest to youngest are;

~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

I have left out a few of the modern datings. The above list includes the majority of the most important historical Anno Mundi datings. We may calculate a difference of 3,368 years between the youngest dating from Rabbi Lipman to the oldest dating by Alfonso X. If we date back from the year 1600, this gives us a scale of 8,584 years. On a scale of 8,584 years, 3,368 years creates a segment which comprises nearly 40 percent of the whole scale. Another note to be made is that most datings happen between 1400 and 1900. The few that happen prior to this are not easy to trace through history.
