Satan Loosed from Bondage after 1,000 years, in 1000 AD
St. Victorinus of Pettau, 300 AD
Victorinus, a bishop martyred in 303, reckoned the 1000 years from the birth of Christ.
St. Augustine, 400 AD
Augustine wrote his magnum opus 'the City of God' with a sort of dim perception of the identity of the Christian Church with the new Jerusalem. Indeed we know that the 1000 years were held to be running by the generations previous to that date, and so intense was their faith that the universal Church was in a ferment of excitement about and shortly after 1000 A.D. in expectation of the outbreak of Satanic influence.
John Wycliffe, 1335-1384
Wycliffe, the reformer, believed that Satan bad been unbound at the end of the 1000 years, and was intensely active in his day.
That this period (1,000 years of Satan bound) in Church history is past, or now runs its course, has been the belief of a roll of eminent men too long to be chronicled on our pages of Augustine, Luther, Bossuet, Cocceius, Grotius, Hammond, Hengstenberg, Keil, Moses Stuart, Philippi, Maurice. (Alexander Brown, Great Day of the Lord, p. 216.)
