As consuls' terms latterly ran from January to December, this eventually caused January, rather than March, to be considered the start of the year. In the middle ages , the year numbering was changed to the Anno Domini count.

The calendar used in most of the modern world, the Gregorian calendar , differs from the Julian calendar in that it skips three leap years every four centuries to more closely approximate the length of the tropical year. The Romans grouped days into an eight-day cycle called a nundina , with every eighth day being a market day.

Independent of the nundinae , astrologers kept a seven-day cycle called a hebdomada where each day corresponded to one of the seven classical planets , with the first day of the week being Saturn-day , followed by Sun-day , Moon-day , Mars-day , Mercury-day , Jupiter-day , and lastly Venus-day. Each astrological day was reckoned to begin at sunrise. The Jews also used a seven-day week, which began Saturday evening.

The seventh day of the week they called Sabbath ; the other days they numbered rather than named, except for Friday, which could be called either the Parasceve or the sixth day. Each Jewish day was reckoned to begin at sunset. Christians followed the Jewish seven-day week, except that they commonly called the first day of the week the Dominica , or the Lord's day. In Constantine the Great gave his subjects every Sunday off in honor of his family's tutelary deity, the Unconquered Sun , thus cementing the seven-day week into Roman civil society.

The Romans divided the daytime into twelve horae or hours starting at sunrise and ending at sunset. The night was divided into four watches.

The duration of these hours varied with seasons; in the winter, when the daylight period was shorter, its 12 hours were correspondingly shorter and its four watches were correspondingly longer. Astrologers divided the solar day into 24 equal hours, and these astrological hours became the basis for medieval clocks and our modern hour mean solar day. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
