On Inter Gravissimas

"The common theme of calendar making is the desire to organize units of time to satisfy the needs and preoccupations of society. In addition to serving practical purposes, the process of organization provides a sense, however illusory, of understanding and controlling time itself. Thus calendars serve as a link between mankind and the cosmos. Whatever their scientific sophistication, calendars must ultimately be judged as social contracts, not as scientific treatises. The acceptance of the Gregorian calendar as a worldwide standard spanned more than three centuries."
