A.D. Ô32.] DIONYSIAN CYCLE. Offa, who was tne son of Diedcan, who was the son of Sigewulf, who was the son of Susanna, who was the son of Gesac, who was the son of Andessc, who was the son of Nascad. In the year of grace 528, Cerdic and his son Kineric, with a large body of armed men, made a great slaughter of the natives at Withgaresbi* in the isle of Wight, and subdued that island. The body of St. Antony is revealed. In the year of grace 529, the body of Antony the monk, was found by divine revelation, and brought to Alexandria. A miracle In the year of grace 530, certain orthodox bishops in Africa, who had had their tongues entirely cut out by the Vandals, were afterwards by a wonderful miracle enabled to speak distinctly. And, what added to the miracle, one of them, for giving way to pride, was immediately deprived of the divine gift, and continued dumb In the year of grace 531, St. Vedastus was ordained first bishop of Arras, by St. Remigius. The table of Dionysius. In the year of grace 532, the abbat Dionysius compiled his cycle of five cycles of nineteen years each. Now because the second year of this work ought to agree in computation with the first year of the nativity of Christ, the three hundred and fifth year of the cycle of Dionysius ought to agree in computation with the three hundred and third year of the nativity of Christ ; so that the fourteenth day of the moon in April should fall on Thursday the twenty-first ; Christ's passion on Friday the twenty-second; and the resurrection on Sunday the twenty-fourth. But as this is not the case, but the fourteenth day of the April moon in that year falls on Sunday the eighteenth, and Easter Sunday on the twenty-fifth, it is thereby shown to be incorrect and contrary to the truth of the gospel. In this year, the emperor Justinian contracted the books of the Roman law into one volume, which was called Justinian's Digest. • Withgaresbi, from Withgar, brother of Stupha. now Carisbrook castle.
