PowerPoint Presentation:

These two overlapping weeks continued to be used by Alexandrian Christians during the fourth century, but the days in both were simply numbered 1–7. Although names of gods were not used, the week beginning on Wednesday was named in Greek ton theon ([day] of the gods), as used by the late fourth-century editor of the Easter letters of Bishop Athanasius, and in a table of Easter dates for 311–369 that survives in an Ethiopic copy. These overlapping weeks are still used in the Ethiopic computes. Each of the days of the week beginning on Sunday is called a "Day of John" whereas each of the days of the week beginning on Wednesday is called a "tentyo", a simple transcription of the Greek ton theo.

Seven Days of The Week How did we Derive the names of the seven days of the week and why are they seven in number ?

PowerPoint Presentation:

The ancient Egyptians named each day of the week after one of The planets. They considered the Seventh day merely as a day of Rest and play.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Later the Romans named the seven days of the week after the Sun, Moon and five planets, which were then known. Each day was considered sacred to the Roman God who was associated with that planet. The days were known as Sun’s-day, Moon's - day, Mars-day and so on . This System was in use at the beginning of the Christian Era.

PowerPoint Presentation:

MONDAY The word Monday comes from the Anglo-Saxon monandae,which means the Moon’s day.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Monday : The name Monday comes from the Old English Mōnandæg (pronounced [mon.nan.dæg] or [mon.nan.dæj'), meaning "Day of the Moon". This is likely based on a translation of the Latin name Dies Lunae (cf. Romance language versions of the name, e.g., French Lundi , Spanish, Lunes , Romanian Luni , Italian Lunedì ).

PowerPoint Presentation:

Tuesday Tuesday comes from Tiu or Twi , the old Angola-Saxon form of Tyr, the name of the Norse God of War.

Tuesday : The name Tuesday comes from the Old English Tiwesdæg (pronounced [ti.wes.dæg] or [ti.wes.dæj], meaning "Try's day." Try (in Old English, Tiw , Tew or Tiu ) was a god of combat and heroic glory in Norse mythology and Germanic paganism. The name of the day is based on Latin Dies Marti's , "Day of Mars" (the Roman war god); compare: French Mardi , Spanish Martes , Romanian Marţi and Italian Martini .

Wednesday Wednesday is the English name for The fourth day of the week. This day Gets its name from Woden or Odin the Chief god in Teutonic mythology, to Whom it was sacred. At the beginning Of the Christian Era, the Germans Called the day Woden’s-day. Its name Later changed to Wednesday.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Wednesday : The name Wednesday comes from the Old English Wōdnesdæg (pronounced [woːd.nes.dæg] or [woːd.nes.dæj) meaning the day of the Germanic god Wooden, more commonly known as Odin, who was the highest god in Norse mythology, and a prominent god of the Anglo-Saxons (and other peoples) in England until about the seventh century. It is based on Latin Dies Mercurii , "Day of Mercury"; compare: French Mercredi , Spanish Miércoles , Romanian Miercuri and Italian Mercoledì . The connection between Mercury and Odin is more strained than the other syncretic connections. The usual explanation is that both Odin and Mercury were considered psychopomps, or leaders of souls, in their respective mythologies. Also, in Old Norse myth, Odin, like Mercury, is associated with poetic and musical inspiration. In German, the day is referred to as Mittwoch (mid week). Similarly in Finnish it is referred to as keskiviikko (keski = mid, viikko = week).

Compare: Spanish and Portuguese Domingo , French Demarche , Romanian Dominic and Italian Domenici .
