'Before the Common Era'/'Common Era'. These are the abbreviations used for the calendrical framework used in the Moral Capital website. This is in acknowledgement of those for whom AD (Anno Domini) and BC (Before Christ) entail inappropriate deference to the Lordship and Messianic status of Jesus. The retention of the Western calendar with this historical hinge-point follows a conventional usage which recognises that different calendars are also in use in other cultures and religious traditions. No slight is intended.
