Was there an opinion that the Jewish calendar was always calculated and not done by witnesses?


Hello if you look at Rabbeinu Bachaye on the pasuk Hachodesh hazeh lachem- He seems to bring down an opinion by Rabbeinu Chananel that the Jewish calendar was always done by calculation not by witnesses.


This is what it seems, however I don’t understand it, and why it isn’t a contradiction to the gemaros in Rosh Hashana.

Best wishes
