Summary
Editio princeps of Bede's important treatise on chronology, composed in 703, which helped to establish the custom of counting years from the birth of Christ, as noted in Printing and the Mind of Man, page 16. In 725 Bede extended this work, calling it now De temporibus ratione, and for the next 500 years, they served as the definitive textbooks on the calendar; see Bedae Opera de temporibus, ed. Charles W. Jones. Cambridge, Mass. : Medieval Academy of America, 1943. Bede's text is preceded by Aleander's Vita Bedae, which includes a bibliography of his works, and followed by Publius Victor's brief list of places of interest in Rome, De regionibus urbis Romae
