Correction

September 30, 2000

An article in yesterday's editions of The Sun incorrectly described the 16th-century calendar reform led by Pope Gregory XIII. A papal bull ordered that days be omitted from the Western calendar, so that Oct. 4, 1582, was followed by Oct. 15, 1582.

The Sun regrets the error.
