Bede did not use a year zero because neither the concept nor a symbol for it existed in the system of Roman numerals.The Babylonian system of the BC era had used the idea of "nothingness" without considering it a number, and the Romans enumerated in much the same way.Consequently, historians regard all these eras as equal. This means that between, for example, Thus the year 2017 actually signifies "the 2017th year".Neither the choice of calendar system (whether Julian or Gregorian) nor the era (Anno Domini or Common Era) determines whether a year zero will be used.The anno Domini nomenclature was not widely used in Western Europe until the 9th century, and the historical year was not uniform throughout Western Europe until 1752.
Because the system is based on durations of time instead of a temporal singularity of 0-Time, the 0th year is unsigned.
Previous Christian histories used anno mundi ("in the year of the world") beginning on the first day of creation, or anno Adami ("in the year of Adam") beginning at the creation of Adam five days later (the sixth day of creation according to the Genesis creation narrative), used by Africanus, or anno Abrahami ("in the year of Abraham") beginning 3,412 years after Creation according to the Septuagint, used by Eusebius of Caesarea, all of which assigned "one" to the year beginning at Creation, or the creation of Adam, or the birth of Abraham, respectively.
Bede continued this earlier tradition relative to the AD era.
The terms anno Domini, Dionysian era, Christian era, vulgar era, and common era were used interchangeably between the Renaissance and the 19th century, at least in Latin.
But vulgar era was suppressed in English at the beginning of the 20th century after vulgar acquired the meaning of "offensively coarse", replacing its original meaning of "common" or "ordinary".
