The sundays are counted after Trinity sunday. The count after Whitsunday can easily be derived from that and is not given explicitly for reasons of simplicity.

 

Gregorian dates of Easter are computed for the years from 1583 on (first Easter sunday after the introduction of the calendar), Julian dates of Easter from 532 CE on (beginning of Dionysius Exiguus's Easter tables). There are countries in which Easter was celebrated on different days. These differences are not considered here (see The Calculation of Easter).
