GREGORIAN CALENDAR REFORM TIMELINE
[1492 – PRESENT ]

While the history of Calendar Reform goes back to the Julian Reform of 45 BC, in this timeline we are only including events that followed the arrival of Columbus to America. The Gregorian Reform of 1582 took place only 90 years after the arrival of Columbus to America at a point in time where the European colonies were already establishing and expanding across the “New World”. The imperial powers needed a tool to control the taxation of the colonies. The Gregorian calendar became an instrument of control and the most pervading tool behind the “Doctrine of Discovery”. Its adoption by the colonies was intended to deprive the native people from their ability to follow natural cycles of time. This timeline will be regularly updated.
