The ''Chicago Manual of Style'' indicates that AD should be used without periods and should precede the year. Anno Domini means "in the year of our Lord," so it would look odd to write "1054 in the year of our Lord." Personally, I would prefer using "CE" instead of "AD." As scholars agree that Christ was born in or around 4 BCE, it seems very odd to have to say that Christ was born "four years Before Christ." --[[User:Fr Lev|Fr Lev]] 01:34, December 5, 2008 (UTC)
