We are at crosspurposes, in my mail I had intended to give three alternative ways Bede's claim, if it was a claim, that Christ was born 150 years nearer Bede's time than orthodox historians allow, and I was hoping you would opt for one of them. It was probably wise of you not to do so. Your answer to my first possibility seems to imply Bede should have said 197 years not 150, an interesting number, or is that just my arithmetic?
