era vulgaris
Explanation:
http://www.solemnus.org/ev.htm

e.v.
What is e.v.? It stands for era vulgaris, Latin for "the common era." In the Thoth dating system (the Thelemic calender uses this system), the years in the usual format (such as 1999, 2000, etc.) are often referenced as the year e.v. Since the Thoth year is denoted by 22-year cycles, the "regular" year is often denoted as such.


http://www.otohq.org/oto/thelema.html

The Thelemic calendar counts years from 1904 EV (the year Liber AL was received). Each Thelemic year starts on March 20th of the civil calendar, at (approximately) the northern-hemisphere Vernal Equinox.
Rather than simply giving the year count from 1904, the Thelemic calendar uses a two-tiered system. The "upper" level gives a count of twenty-two year periods since 1904; the "lower" level gives the years since the start of the current twenty-two year period. Both are zero-based, with nonzero numbers being represented as upper and lower case Roman numerals, respectively. So, for example, the civil year 1996 is (after March 20) Thelemic year IViv, because 1904 + (4 * 22) + 4 equals 1996.
Some Thelemites assign the twenty-two years of each cycle to the twenty-two Trumps of the Tarot. The 22-year period numbers themselves are also assigned in this way. Hence, 1996 is doubly linked to Trump IV of the Tarot, the Emperor.
Within each year, dates and times are often expressed by the positions of the Sun and Moon in the Tropical zodiac. For example, May 12, 1996 EV at 6pm PST would be expressed as "IViv, Sol 22° Taurus, Luna 29° Pisces." This specifies the precise date and time to within about two hours.
When giving dates in the civil calendar, Thelemites will often append "e.v." This is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase "era vulgaris," or "common era."

  -> I'll tell you, David: I searched for "E.V. AND year". When I found the site about the English mystic, I added "stands for" to my search. :-)
