Roman EmpireEdit
  • July 19Great Fire of Rome: A fire begins in the merchant area of Rome and soon burns completely out of control, while Emperor Nero allegedly plays his lyre and sings, as he watches the blaze from a safe distance. There is no hard evidence to support this claim: fires were very common in Rome at the time. The fire destroys close to one-half of the city and is officially blamed on the Christians, a small but growing religious movement; Nero is accused of being the arsonist by popular rumour.
  • Persecution of Christians in Rome begins under Nero. Peter the Apostle is possibly among those crucified.
  • Nero proposes a new urban planning program based on the creation of buildings decorated with ornate porticos, the widening of the streets and the use of open spaces. This plan will not be applied until after his death in AD 68.
  • Lyon sends a large sum of money to Rome to aid in the reconstruction. However, during the winter of AD 64–65, Lyon suffers a catastrophic fire itself, and Nero reciprocates by sending money to Lyon.
  • Phoenicia becomes part of Syria.

ReligionEdit
  • The Gospel of Matthew is probably written between AD 60 and this year.
  • Paul of Tarsus ordains Timothy as bishop of Ephesus (traditional date).
  • In China, the first official reference to Buddhism is made.
  • The first Christian community in Africa is founded by Mark, a disciple of Peter. Mark begins to write his gospel. The Gospel According to Mark is an anonymous work and there is no scholarly consensus on when it was first written though it was almost certainly written after the Temple at Jerusalem was destroyed. So this claim of such an early date of authorship presents the contents of the Gospel as prophetic. There simply is no evidence that this is plausible.
  • The apostle Thaddeus, also called Saint Jude in Armenia, is probably martyred in this year (citation needed).
  • The apostle Simon the Zealot is probably martyred in Armenia in this year (citation needed).
