Scope note
The Events hierarchy contains generic terms for occurrences, happenings, and occasions of a social, cultural, religious, or personal nature (e.g., "anniversaries," "concerts," "births," the names of holidays such as "Christmas"). It does not include one-time occurrences with proper names (e.g., "coronations" would be included, but not "Coronation of Charlemagne"). Relation to other hierarchies: Terms for activities and methodologies associated with specific contexts (e.g., "researching," "adjucication") are in the Functions hierarchy. Terms relating to actions performed with concrete objects and materials (e.g., "polishing"), are found in the Processes and Techniques hierarchy. Proper names for singular events are found in the CONA Iconography Authority.
