Sir: What a muddle about the millennium! (Leading article, 3 January.) Dionysius (not Dionysus) Exiguus lived in the sixth (not seventh) century; and, if Jesus was born in 4BC, the 2000th anniversary falls in 1997 (not 1996), since there is no year between 1BC and AD1.

Sir: What Dominic Kirkham and other supporters of the 'romanticism is fascism' theory (Letters, 1 October) fail to grasp is the sheer variety of political theories that were spawned by the Romantic movement. If it is true that the Nazis hijacked part of it for their own warped purposes, it is equally true that opposing revolutionary movements exploited it, too.

Sir: Your report of the dispersal of the contents of Penkill Castle, Ayrshire, and its subsequent sale (31 December) did not mention the most important work of art to remain - the mural The King's Quair, which covers the entire wall of the staircase tower. Painted by William Bell Scott between 1865 and 1869, it is the most extensive and remarkable scheme of pre- Raphaelite decoration in the British Isles.
