P TO THE fourth cen tu r v there was no re gu 1 a r i t y about t h i! <1 a t o of Easter Sun day. Thoso of the early Christians who be lieved the Christian Passover to be a com memoration of Christ's death adhered to the custom of holding the Easter festival on the day prescribed for the Jewish pasch. the fourteenth day of the tirst month; that is.the lumnar month, of which the fourteenth day either falls on or next after tho day of tho vernal equinox. But most of Christian churches attaching greater importance to the day of Christ's resurrection, held to Easter being celebrated on the Sunday which followed the fourteenth day of the moon of March, the day on which Christ suffered. This difference was finally set tled by the council of Nice, in the year 325. The rule then adopted is still in force. Easter is always the Sunday after the full moon which happens on or next after March 21?the vernal equinox. By this arrangement, Easter may come as early as March 22 or as late as April 25.
