Or so some scientists claim: The Germanist, systems analyst, and scholar, Dr. Heribert Illig has claims that 297 years of the Middle Ages (September 614 until August 911) did not take place, but rather are an invention and time forgery of the "first millennium emperor" Otto III and his contemporaries Hypothesis One: Otto III didn't live accidentally around the year 1000 AD; he himself haddefined this date! He wanted to reign in this year, because this suited his understanding ofChristian milleniarism. He defined this date with the help of his famous and well-versedfriend Gerbert de Aurillac, later Pope Sylvester II. In reality they lived approximately sevenhundred years after the birth of Jesus Christ, but never until then had the years been reckoned`after Christ'. Perhaps unaware of their error and without intending to falsify they defined onespecial year as `1000 AD' (Illig 1991). Consequently chroniclers had to invent 300 years of history.
