This article concerns the period 9 BC – 1 BC, the last nine years of the 1st century BC. Note that there is no year zero (0) in either the proleptic Gregorian calendar or Julian calendar. Hence 1 BC is followed by the year AD 1.

AD 1 is the first year of the Anno Domini era and of the Common Era. In 525 (the consulship of Probus Junior [Flavius Probus]), a Christian monk named Dionysius Exiguus stated that the incarnation of Jesus occurred 525 years earlier.[1] Whether Dionysius regarded "incarnation" as Jesus' birth or conception, and whether Dionysius placed it in 1 BC or AD 1 are debated by modern scholars. Nevertheless, these same scholars believe Jesus was actually born a few years earlier, during this decade.

Albrecht Altdorfer's painting the Adoration of the Magi (made ca. 1530) is one of several works of art concerning the Navity of Jesus. Though Jesus's exact birthdate is unknown (other than it would have occurred sometime during this decade), but what is certain is that his teachings would form the foundation of Christianity, which is today a major world religion with a following of around a third of the world's Population[3]

Because of the non-existence of the "year 0", this "decade" and its successor have only nine years each (year 0 does not exist in either the proleptic Gregorian calendar or Julian calendar). For other calendar systems, see year zero.

The year 1 of the Anno Domini era is the traditionally accepted year of Jesus' birth. The historical veracity of the claim is now frequently considered incorrect, and Jesus is thought to have been born a few years earlier.
