Origin of Gregorian Calendar

About 260 years back, a calendar was made by the Pope to change the date of Easter. Pope Gregory XIII in 1582 gifted this calendar to the world before which Julian calendar was used. Since the calendar implemented after the Roman emperor Julius Caesar had a flaw i.e. the length of the solar year being greater than 11 minutes, the seasons were falling out of place. Easter, observed on March 21, was going away from the spring equinox. The same influenced leap years which did not fall on every fourth year because of the wrong calculation.

Scientists of Italy, Aloysius Lilius, having identified the problem and developed a system which Pope later unveiled. However, there still is an issue with the calendar i.e. every year 26 seconds are falling out of place and this calendar will also create a huge difference by the end we reach the year 4909. Since a difference of 26 seconds is way smaller than 11 minutes, there was a solid reason why to replace the Julian calendar with Gregorian.

Though the reason behind this amendment was strictly scientific, there were protests as people thought that the Catholic church has devised a plot.

The Roman calendar as per Julius Caesar was in shackles. As they tried to follow the lunar cycle, the calendar continued to fall out of the place. In 7th century BC there often was a need to add some days in the year or correct the seasons. Caesar consulted an Alexandrian astronomer named Sosigenes who advised him to go with the Solar calendar and eliminate the lunar considerations to develop a stable calendar. Egyptians went by the same principal and 67 days were added to the year 46 B.C. the year now constituted of 365 and ¼ days. To make a balance of this ¼ days, it was decided that every four years an extra day will be added to the month of February. This could have theoretically prevented the calendar from going away from accuracy. He did what he could and some time before his assassination changed the name of the month Quintilis to Julius (July) and the next month of Sextilis was renamed after Augustus as August (successor to Julius Caesar).

The ideas given by Sosigenes did solve the problem as per Julius Caesar but when it was revealed that the calculation of the year to be of 365.25 days was not exact and the year actually consisted of 365.242199 days there was again a need of change. Same happened with this calendar. Had the great astronomer calculated the number of days with this preciseness, we would still be calling it Julian Calendar and not Gregorian.

This was all about how Gregorian calendar came into existence. We shared it with you as it's always good to know why is something the way it is.
