year of our Lord

year of our Lord
The beginning of the Christian era. In England, in court proceedings, the date some times refers to the year of the king's reign and sometimes to the beginning of the Christian era, but since in this country our only national era, that of our independence, is not used in courts of justice, and we use but the one, the Christian era, it is not a fatal defect in either criminal or civil proceedings to omit the words "of our Lord," after the word “year.” Commonwealth v Doran, 80 Mass (14 Gray) 37, 38.
