I had some fun with this on another forum. It is a brief history of The Roman Empire and Christianity, beginning with the year 1 AD. This thread, starting with the year 1 AD, will deal ONLY with the history of that year. Anyone is allowed to post, but you may only post about what happened in that year. Remember that some of these dates are approximate. For the record, Jesus was probably born in 4 BC. He might have been born in 6 BC, or as late as 7 AD. To keep things straight, I will assume that He was born in 4 BC. There is no year "0." And now, for the year 1: Buddhism first appears in China. Augustus Caesar begins the twenty-eighth year of his reign. Tiberius, who will later become emperor, defeats rebellions in Germany.
