annus mirabilis
  4

Latin phrase that can be translated as "the wonderful year" or "the year of the miracle". It does not apply to a particular date, but to any year where a series of venturous events occur. A curious case is that of 1667 in England, which was a miraculous year for having survived 1666, fateful year because it contained the apocalyptic number 666, and that by numerological superstition was the end of the world since it contained in it all Roman numerical values in decreasing order : MDCLXVI 128530;; and also by the deaths of more than one hundred thousand people in London due to an outbreak of bubonic plague, coupled with a fire that swept through the city leaving some 70000 people homeless. But the following year he began the recovery and earned his qualifier.
