Sometimes used as the Solar counterpart to the Lunar civilisation. Like civilisation, it does not necessarily refer to any conventionally recognised single religion; since Yeats's focus is almost exclusively European, Christianity is the dominant representative of the Monotheism which dominates the 2000-plus years of our current cycle, however, it also includes Islam, philosophical Platonism, and, to a lesser extent, Buddhism. Yeats's Monotheistic Religious Period, focused on the Christian Dispensation, starts at the mid-point of the Classical Civilisation in 1AD (1CE), and the Civilisation which this enabled starts around the year 1000CE (see AV B 203-04). These two historical cycles, therefore, have the same length but are ‘syncopated', the Civilisation corresponding to a Lunar month, starting on the Ides of a Religion's Solar month.
