From BiblePortal Wikipedia

Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature [1]

(or Alexandrinum) is an anonymous epitome of the world's history from the creation to the twentieth year of the reign of Heraolius, A.D. 630. A MS. of the 10th century, which was found in a Sicilian library: in the middle of the 16th century, is now in the Vatican library. The question as to what day of the lunar month it was on which our Saviour suffered is elaborately discussed, and a chronological table of the main events of our Lord's life is given. The author's dates correspond to B.C. 3 for the birth, and A.D. 32 for the crucifixion of Christ. This chronicle is the subject, of a special essay by Van der Hagen (Amst. 1736), where will be found the best explanations of those points in the chronicler's method of computation which present difficulty.
