Daar waar Dionysius Exiguus uitsluitend een kolom van met elkaar in verband staande afzonderlijke “aantallen” epacts (zoals “12 epacts” en “geen epacts”) ziet, is het ons gemoderniseerde brein dat een wiskundige structuur, een rij van (abstracte) niet negatieve gehele getallen meent te zien.
Dionysius Exiguus’ “nulla” in zijn kolommen van epacts staat voor “geen epacts” (hetgeen neerkomt op ‘niets’), niet voor het getal nul.
Het ontbreken van een jaar nul aan onze jaartelling is dus allerminst een fout van Dionysius Exiguus en zijn navolgers; het is zuiver en alleen een voorwaarde waaraan onze jaartelling moet voldoen om haar tweezijdige symmetrie te kunnen behouden.

 Dionysius Exiguus - Netencyclo, Nederlandstalige Encyclopedie : Dionysius Exiguus
In Dionysius’ paastabel zijn de kalenderjaren (zie kolom A van Dionysius' tabel) genummerd niet volgens de jaartelling van keizer Diocletianus, zoals in de aan Kyrillos toegeschreven paastabel nog wel het geval was, maar volgens zijn nieuwe Anno Domini jaartelling, die bedoeld was te zijn begonnen met Jezus’ incarnatie.
Dionysius Exiguus presenteerde zijn paastabel (die betrekking heeft op de jaren 532 tot en met 626) in of kort voor het jaar 526 aan officiële vertegenwoordigers van paus Johannes I, helaas zonder onmiddellijk succes.
Er is echter niets waaruit we zouden kunnen afleiden dat zijn 'nulla' een echte 'nul' was (hij gebruikte het in elk geval niet in zijn berekeningen).

  Dionysius Exiguus
Dionysius is most well known as the inventor of the Anno Domini era, which is used to number the years of both the Gregorian calendar and the Julian calendar.
In 525, Dionysius prepared a table of the future dates of Easter and a set of "arguments" explaining their calculation on his own initiative, not at the request of Pope John.
In either case, Dionysius' method had actually been used by the Church of Alexandria (but not by the Church of Rome) at least as early as 311, and probably began during the first decade of the fourth century, its dates naturally being given in the Alexandrian calendar.

  Dionysius Exiguus - Ökumenisches Heiligenlexikon
The surname EXIGUUS, or "The Little", adopted probably in self-deprecation and not because he was small of stature; flourished in the earlier part of the sixth century, dying before the year 544.
Of great importance were the contributions of Dionysius to the science of canon law, the first beginnings of which in Western Christendom were due to him.
Dionysius also gave attention to the calculation of Easter, which so greatly occupied the early Church.

Dionysius Exiguus, a monk from Russia who died about 544, was asked by Pope John I to set out the dates for Easter from the years 527 to 626.

In addition, Dionysius proposed to base the year numbering from the incarnation of Jesus Christ instead of from the accession of Roman Emperor Diocletian (September 29, 284), as was the custom since the council of Nicea (325).
Dionysius calculated Christ's incarnation as March 753 AUC and his birth as December 25, 754 ab urbe condita (from the founding of Rome).
Dionysius Exiguus apparently proposed his year numbering system in a letter to a Bishop Petronius.

 Dionysius Exiguus
Cassiodorus, however, calls him simply "monk", while Bede calls him "abbot." But as it was not unusual to apply the latter term to distinguished monks who were not heads of their houses, it is uncertain whether Dionysius was abbot in fact or only by courtesy.
Dionysius did good service to his contemporaries by his translations of many Greek works into Latin; and by these translations some works, the originals of which have perished, have been handed down to us.
His friend Cassiodorus depicts in glowing terms the character of Dionysius as a saintly ascetic, and praises his wisdom and simplicity, his accomplishments and his lowly-mindedness, his power of eloquent speech and his capacity of silence.

It is then that Dionysius Exiguus, a Catholic monk, refused to employ the contemporary Roman system of chronology any longer, even tho it was perfectly normal to do so in those days.
Until the days of Exiguus the leaders of the Christian temples had been greatly occupied with the calculation of Easter, one of their religious feastdays that fell on a different day each year.
Exiguus came up with the novel system of chronology when 'e was ordered by the Catholic temple chief to compile new tables for this day.

Dionysius Exiguus (his Latin name, usually translated as Dennis the Little) was the 6th century monk who devised the dating system dividing events of history before the birth of Jesus Christ and after.
Dionysius, however, was a product of the age he lived in and bestowed on future centuries two major errors that befuddle celebrants who were preparing for 2000.
First, Dionysius paid no heed to the biblical account that Jesus was born during the reign of King of Herod.

The beginning of Dionysius' year was probably 25 March, the anniversary of the Incarnation ever since 25 December, nine months later, was chosen as the Nativity in the fourth century.

 Millennium Mistake
Dionysius Exiguus (see section 2) obtained his Easter table (which concerns the years 532 up to and including 626) by extrapolation from the Easter table attributed to Kyrillos.
Dionysius Exiguus’ “nulla” and Beda Venerabilis’ “nullae” in their columns of epacts are typical examples of precursors of the number zero, they stand for “no epacts”, which boils down to ‘nothing’, which term is, in contrast to the number zero, no mathematical concept.
Dionysius Exiguus did not worry about that, because he did not at all need those nonpositive numbers for the setting up of his incomplete era (which actually was used by him only for the benefit of his easter table), and Beda Venerabilis too could manage very well without these numbers.

 SPACE-TALK - Why we have noe year 2001?
Dionysius Exiguus in his " LIBER DE PASCHATE " indicates, he made a new calculation of the Easter data.
According to Dionysius Exiguus, the cycle created by Cyrill ended in the Diokletian Year 247 (531CE) Dionysius Exiguus synchronized the subsequent year with of his new 532 year lasting lunisolar Easter cycle and so created a new yearly counting.
It is maintained that Dionysius Exiguus, by incorporating these three factors, precalculated the planet conjunction of May 2000 with the help of planet boards and determined the year 1 A.D. exactly 1999 years before it and thus linked "Platonic Year" with "Greatest Year".

 General History: BCE and CE
As Dionysius explained to Petronius, he did not wish to continue the memory of a tyrant who persecuted Christians, and instead he proposed to number years from the incarnation of Jesus Christ, starting his new 95-year table with the year 532.
However, Dionysius used a modified version of the Alexandrian method, and does not mention Victorius or the 532-year cycle.
However it is not clear where Dionysius puts the beginning of the year: besides January 1, also March 1, Christmas day (December 25), Easter day, and the date of the vernal equinox (March 21 or even March 25) are "styles" that have been used at one time.

 Shattering popular belief about the New Millennium
Dionysius started marking time in the era referred to as Anno Domini (the year of our Lord), or A.D. for short, beginning in what he believed to be the year Jesus was born.
Now, where many people get confused is that they take the over-simplified view that because the move from the year 1999 to the year 2000 involves moving into a "new set of thousands" that it must mean that it is the start of the new millennium.
Dionysius Exiguus developed his calendar based on what he believed to be a significant point in time for Christianity.
