Description
Abstract (cited)
Archbishop James Ussher is probably best known for his reckoning of the date of the creation of the world (at the beginning of the night preceeding 23 October 4004 BC). However, his calculations were all based on a meticulous study of the Old Testament and other early Christian and non-Christian chronographical writings. This paper announces the discovery of a previously-unnoticed Oxford manuscript that lists the impressive array of patristic and post-patristic writings on the subject of the early Easter controversy that he accumulated for his researches.
