The Date of Orthodox Easter: An Algorithm Due to Gauss
RMD(x,y) = remainder when x is divided by y.
The number RC ranges from 1 to 35 which corresponds to March 22 to April 25 in the Julian Calendar (currently April 4 to May 8 on the Gregorian). The Julian Calendar is now 13 days behind the Gregorian, and will be until March 1, 2100 when it will be 14 days behind the Gregorian Calendar.
