The Council decided to keep Easter on the same Sunday throughout the Christian world.
To fix incontrovertibly the date for Easter, and to make it determinable indefinitely in advance, the Council constructed tables to compute the date.
For dates of Easter and other Christian observances, see the Selected Christian Observances service.
Similarly, in 1954 the first ecclesiastical full moon after March 21 fell on Saturday, April 17. The astronomical equinox also occurred on March 21.
The ecclesiastical rules that determine the date of Easter trace back to 325 CE at the First Council of Nicaea convened by the Roman Emperor Constantine.
At that time the Roman world used the Julian Calendar (put in place by Julius Caesar).
By the 1700's, though, most of western Europe had adopted the Gregorian Calendar.
The Eastern Christian churches still determine the Easter dates using the older Julian Calendar method.
The statement that Easter Day is the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs next after the vernal equinox, is only an approximate statement of the actual ecclesiastical rules.
