Royal Arch Masons: In The Year of the Discovery

Anno Inventionis (A.I. or A:.I:.)(530 B.C.E.)

Anno Inventionis is Latin for In The Year of the Discovery.

Historical Significance: King Solomon built the first temple. Zerubbabel built or caused to be built, the Second Temple.

Little is known or written about Zerubbabel except that he was a famous man and that at all events, Zerubbabel was governor of Judah in the second year of Darius Hystaspis' reign in 520 B.C.E..

The Masonic calendar used by Royal Arch Masons dates from the year of the second temple having been caused to be built by Zerubbabel in 530 B.C.E.

Math: Anno Inventionis is found by adding 530 years to the current date, thus 2012 C.E. + 530 B.C.E. = 2542 A:.I:.< /EM > (Anno Inventionis)

Relevance: The date 2542 A.I. celebrates the building of the Second Temple, 2542 years ago, believed to be on or very near the site of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem
