Hi Urial,

You are absolutely correct, both abbreviations mean the same thing. CE is a more recent abbreviation, and stands for Christian Era. AD (Anno Domini) in the year of our Lord was, I think. regarded as implying the user was himself a Christian, the new version merely involves a recognition that the date uses Christ as a starting point. Both are still in common use.

Hi Urial,

A quick correction. CE sounds for Common Era, not Christian Era, but otherwise all is as I said in my first post. CE is more "politically correct" in a multi-cultural society.

Yup that's it. These days,BCE and CE seem to be more commonly used than their Latin equivalents.
