The above-described shift of astronomical dating from "antiquity" into the Middle Ages appears to conform well to the basic chronological shifts by approximately 330-360,1050, and 1800 years. We shall note here that those shifts were discovered on the basis of completely different, independent considerations - namely, as a result of analysis of repetition duplicates we revealed in the "Scaligerian textbook of history", and above all, on the basis of the discovered dynastic parallels, or parallelisms. Those three shifts shall be referred to as "dynastic".
We shall present a few bright examples of concurrence between astronomical and dynastic shifts (see fig. 6.100). Now we shall decode the legend we use on this diagram.
1) The Star of Bethlehem. According to the Gospel, when Jesus Christ was born, a blazing star flared in the sky, called the Star of Bethlehem. In accordance with tha Scaligerian version, this flash was dated "year zero" of the new era. As demonstrated below, this flash actually occurred in 1054 a.d., but the Scaligerite chronologists artificially shifted it backwards by 1053 years, from the XI century into the I century. We may recall that a famous supernova explosion was recorded in 1054. More details below. Thus, the difference between 1054 and "the year zero" is 1053 years, exactly equal to the value of one of three main chronological shifts on the global chronological map. That shift is in good concurrence with the independent identification of the Second Roman Empire with the Holy Roman Empire of the X-XIII century (fig. 6.23 and fig. 6.24). The shifts we discovered should not be thought to describe certain periodicity in the distributions of dates of actual astronomical phenomena, like eclipses or explosions. We have shown earlier that the Scaligerian links of ancient documents containing descriptions of eclipses as compared to the dates of actual ancient eclipses are at a great stretch in the absolute majority of cases, therefore, it may no way be an astronomical proof.
2) Total eclipse at the time of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. We have already recalled that, according to the early Christian tradition, at the time of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ either a solar or a lunar eclipse occured. The Scaligerian chronology offers the dating of 33 a.d. for that eclipse. However, as we noted, this eclipse doesn't fit into the description of the original sources (, Volume 1). An accurate dating provides two possibilities: either the lunar eclipse of 1075 a.d., or a solar eclipse of 1086 (, ). (See Chron2, Chapter 2.) In this case, the shift of dates originating here is approximately 1050 years as well - in other words, coincides with the second basic chronological shift of 1050 years. This shift conforms well to an independent identification of the Second Roman Empire with the Holy Roman Empire of the X-XIII century (fig. 6.23 and fig. 6.24).
3) The Apocalypse. The Scaligerian date for creation of this Biblical book is the I-II century a.d. (, ). Our new astronomical dating of the Apocalypse in compliance with the horoscope contained therein (see above), yields 1486 a.d. The chronological shift here is approximately of 1300-1350 years - i.e., approximately equal to the sum of the first and the second basic chronological shifts by 330-360 years and 1000-1050 years.
4) Jesus Christ. In the Scaligerian version, Jesus Christ lived in the I century a.d. According to our re sults, he had lived in the XI century a.d. (see the global chronological map above). The chronological shift here is one of 1053 years (see details below). This shift conforms well to an independent dynastic parallelism superposing the Second Roman Empire over the Holy Roman Empire of the X-XIII century (fig. 6.23, fig. 6.24). Apparently, a reflection of Jesus Christ in the secular-religious "Roman" history of the XI century was "Pope Hildebrand", a.k.a. Gregory VII. (See details below, in Chron2, Chapter 2.)
5) Explosions of Stars. It is very important that the three main chronological shifts by approximately 330, 1050, and 1800 years conform well to the astronomical data of irregular character - we mean, phenomena different from eclipses that take place with certain periodicity and are in this sense regular, or can be calculated. The explosions of stars are an important example of irregular phenomena. Three chronological shifts become apparent in the distribution of the Scaligerian dates of nova and supernova explosions. The dates of "ancient explosions" appear to be obtained from shifting the dates of actual mediaeval explosions by approximately 333 years, 1053 years, or 1778 years downwards. In particular, the dates of all explosions allegedly of 900 b.c. - 390 a.d. are obtained from the dates of explosions of the X-XIII century by shifting them 1053 years backwards. More details on this in Chron2, Chapter 2. In the Fig.6.100 you can observe only one of such examples. The explosion of the alleged year of 186 a.d. "is obtained" from an actual explosion of 1230 a.d. by shifting it backwards by 1044 years, which virtually coincides with the second chronological shift of 1050 years.
6) Thucydides. The Scaligerian history dates the three eclipses described by the "antique" Thucydides back to the V century, namely, the years 431,424 and 413 a.d. Upon precise astronomical dating all three are lifted to the XI or the XII century a.d. (see Chroni, Chapter 1). Thus, the dates in this case are shifted by 1470 or 1560 years. This is probably the difference between the second and the third basic shifts, as 1800 - 330 = 1470 years.
7) Titus Livy. Scaligerite chronologists dated the eclipse described by Titus Livy in his History (LIV, 36, 1) back to the middle of the II century a.d., allegedly 168 a.d. Upon precise astronomical dating it was identified with the eclipse of 955 a.d., or that of 1020 a.d. The value of the shift forwards is either 1120 years or 1188 years. That is close to the second chronological shift of 1050 years.
8) Ptolemy's Almagest Ptolemy's Almagest is considered to have been compiled in the time of the "ancient" Roman Emperor Antoninus Pius (allegedly 138-161 a.d.), in the second year of his reign. However in our dating, the star catalog Almagest dates back to a completely different epoch, namely, the VII-XIV century a.d. (see Chron3). By precession of longitudes, the Latin edition of Almagest dates back to approximately the XV-XVI century a.d. Thus, the dates are shifted forwards by about a millennium in the first case and about 1400 years in the second case - that is, either the second chronological shift by 1050 years, or the sum of the first shift with the second, 350 + 1050 = 1400, is manifested here. It is interesting that the epoch of the first editions of the Almagest- allegedly around 1530 a.d. - differs from 140 a.d. (that is, the 2nd year of the reign of Antoninus Pius) by approximately 1390-1400 years as well. It should be noted that upon lifting the dates, the "ancient" Antoninus Pius is superposed, in accordance with independent dynastic parallelisms, over the epoch of the first Almagest editions of the alleged years 1528,1537,1538,1542,1551, and so on. Immediately before this time, in 1493-1519, Maximilian I Pius Augustus, a famous Emperor, reigned in the Empire of the Habsburgs (Nov-Gorod?) (fig. 6.60 and fig.6.61).
9) Zodiacs of Dendera. The Scaligerian dating of the Round and Long Zodiacs in the Dendera Temple in Egypt - allegedly circa 30 b.c. (or 54-68 a.d.) and the alleged years 14-37 a.d. The exact astronomical solution is completely different - namely, 1185 a.d. for the Round Zodiac and 1168 a.d. for the Long Zodiac (see Chroni, chapter 2:5.4). Therefore, a shift forwards by approximately 1150-1200 years may be observed.
10) Horoscopes of Athribis. Scaligerite historians dated the two horoscopes of Athribis discovered by Flinders Petrie, a famous Egyptologist, back to circa 52 and 59 a.d. However, the exact astronomical solution yields 1230 and 1268 a.d., respectively (see Chroni, chapter 2:5.4). The shift amounts to about 1200 years here.
