  1. Does the difference between Julian and Gregorian calendars matter?

    (Over that time scale, probably not. I think the difference is 3 days over 400 years…)

    I compute 79 years.


  2. It's 79 years and 365 days. I'm trying to figure out whether the leap year situation gets screwed up in the switch, but I think that's one day short of 80 years. Of course, this is calculating back what would have been days x and y in those years, which were not denominated thus at the time.

    The older Greek calendars were out of use by then, so I think we can safely stay in the Roman calendar.
