The Gregorian reform of the calendar in the sixteenth century was enacted for religious reasons, and, in some places, was rejected on religious and political grounds.

Where it had been rejected on such grounds, it was eventually adopted for practical purposes, as the religious objections no longer carried the political import that they had originally. The Gregorian calendar was a reform of the Julian calendar.
