dates back to the second century of
Christendom , and It has been since
uniformly celebrated by nearly all
branches of tbe Christian church with
appropriate rejoicings and ceremonies.
Tun frequent and somewhat heated
controversies , however , relative to the
date of Christ's birth early in the
fourth century led Pope Julius I. to
order a thorough investigation of the
subject by the learned theologians and
historians ol that period , which re
sulted In an agreement upon Dec. 25 ,
and that decision H wined to have so
settled all disputes that that date was
universally accepted except by the
