About 20 years ago I was told a story by Duncan Steel about a secret plan In Elizabethan England to deploy a new, better calendar to weaken the Pope and the Catholic Church. The work originated with Simon Cassidy, a calendar researcher who threaded together calendar design, the work of John Dee and England’s attempts to Colonize the Americas in the lat 16th century.
I’m not saying this is true, but it’s a fun story that explains a bit about the astronomical and ecclesiastical origins of the calendar we have today
