The genealogical significance of Easter

Easter belongs to the moveable feasts, its date is different from year to year. In the year 325, the Council of Nicaea decided that it was to take place on the first Sunday that would follow the first full moon of spring. The introduction of the Gregorian Calendar led to a postponement of the Easter date.


The dates of all other moveable feasts are based on Easter Sunday, which sometimes requires a bit of calculating. A few calendar and date calculators may prove helpful in doing so – you can find them in our ÖFR-WIKI (in German):

We wish all of our members and readers happy Easter holidays.
