D." calendar designation first came into being, says Lynn Hunt, author of Measuring Time, Making History and professor of history at UCLA. For example, the Romans generally described years based on who was consul, or by counting from the founding of the city of Rome.
Before Bede's use of it, there was no use of a year number in everyday use in western Europe. The normal mode of specifying the year before that time (8th century) was by regnal years, or consular years (Rome), or Judges/Archons/Olympiads (Greece).
In the Collector's Guide by Caroline & Nick Pope you will find a list of the known painters with number-signature and their working period at Royal Copenhagen.

It was invented, more or less, by Dionysus Exiguus (circa 470 – 544).

But how did we get from that event-based organization to sticking with just one primary moment? is very easy for people to cope with because the life of Jesus is obviously incredibly important in Christian Europe.
"The history is very vague, because it takes a long time" to adopt this sort of dating, Hunt says. So Anno Domini, the year of our Lord, is a very easy transition to make, as opposed to dating the year an emperor had reigned in Rome." Still, even if there's logic to counting from a single incredibly important event (and dating like this was also the basis for the Islamic calendar), it took hundreds of years to catch on."Christians wanted to get away from the Roman chronology, so they begin to develop a Christian chronology.
