a span of 1000 years
(New Testament) in Revelations it is foretold that those faithful to Jesus will reign with Jesus over the earth for a thousand years; the meaning of these words have been much debated; some denominations (e.g. Jehovah's Witnesses) expect it to be a thousand years of justice and peace and happiness
the 1000th anniversary (or the celebration of it)
Hence: A long period of happiness, righteousness, and prosperity, usually considered as being in the indefinite future.
A thousandth anniversary; especially, Each first day of January falling in a year which is a multiple of one thousand, such as in 1000 a. d. or 2000 a. d.; as, the second millenium will be celebrated on January 1, 2000; also used attributively, as a millenium celebration. Technically, if the calendar of the Common Era (Anno Domini) is considered as beginning on January 1, 1 a. d., then the millenium will fall in each year ending in 001, as in 1001 a. d. or January 1, 2001 a. d.. However in the common culture, the change of the first digit of the year from 1 to 2, as from 1999 to 2000 is considered as the more symbolic event, especially since the dating of the beginning of the Christian era is somewhat arbitrary, having been an attempt to fix the date of the birth of Christ, and being considered by scholars as being in error by as much as five years.
Origin: [LL., fr. L. mille a thousand + annus a year. See Mile, and Annual.]
A period of time consisting of one thousand years.
The period of one thousand years during which Christ will reign on earth (according to Millenarianist interpretations).
A period of universal happiness, peace or prosperity; a utopia.
The year 2000.
Origin: From post-classical millennium, from mille + -ennium (from annus).
a thousand years; especially, the thousand years mentioned in the twentieth chapter in the twentieth chapter of Revelation, during which holiness is to be triumphant throughout the world. Some believe that, during this period, Christ will reign on earth in person with his saints
Origin: [LL., fr. L. mille a thousand + annus a year. See Mile, and Annual.]
A millennium is a period of time equal to one thousand years. It derives from the Latin mille, thousand, and annus, year. It is often, but not necessarily, related to a particular dating system. Sometimes, it is used specifically for periods of thousand years that begin at the starting point of the calendar in consideration, or in later years that are whole number multiples of a thousand years after it. The term can also refer to an interval of time beginning on any date. Frequently in the latter case it may have religious or theological implications. Sometimes in use, such an interval called a "millennium" might be interpreted less precisely, i.e., not always being exactly 1000 years long. It could be, for example, 1050, 1500, etc.
