The Venerable Bede and his stories of miracles

His writings established the use of BC and AD with dates. Bede applied his knowledge of astronomy for calculating the correct date for Easter and found an error in the Julian calendar. Bede also described how the seasonal motion of the Sun and Moon influences the changes of the tides. He made a new calculation of the age of the world since the creation as well.
