This 13th c A.D. monument with its 9th c nave in which the remains of St Remi(440-533) became a heritage site of Unesco in 1991. The site includes the Abbey of Saint-Remi, together with the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Remi and Palace of Tau.
Scholars claim that Saint-Remi instituted the holy anointing of the kings of France. It is said that Saint-Remi baptised Clovis I in the Cathedral in Reims(Our Lady of Reims or in French: Notre-Dome de Reims) in 496 A.D. Historians are not sure of the origin of this Abbey in France to which they assign an obscure time period of 6th c A.D. It finds its history linked to chapel of Saint-Christopher who received the relics of Saint Remy in 553. Clovis I belonged to the clan of Cyclopes which as same as the Kaurabas of the epic the Mahabharata.
Name Remi or de Remi pinpoints the sacred seat of ancient Rome; while Remi refers to Rome, Reims means ‘Romans’ or the “Rhamanai’ or the ‘Ramanakas’. Ancient Rome was then called Eschate means ‘at the end of the world’ or ‘on the edge of the world’. Classical scholarship as well as biblical scholars misunderstood the meaning of this word ‘eschate’ which refers to a place-name. Both St Paul and Alexander visited this place. But unfortunately this historical fact remained far away from the history of ancient Rome. Saketa is the corrupt form of this name. The commune of Escahu in Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France near Strasbourg marks the migrants from ancient Rome. People of Eschau are the real Romans who migrated to Europe after the Great Flood. They carried the relics of Saint-Remi during their time of migration. They were the people who were historically responsible to establish a chapel in the memory of Saint Remi or the Saint who migrated from ancient Rome. Either he died during the time of migration or the migrants who were their followers carried his relics with them which had been placed in the Abbey of Remi.
Eschau is recognised with the Eglise Saint-Trophime, a church dedicated in the memory of Trophimus of Arles. It contains relics of Sophia the Martyr. Eglise is as same as Og-island of Ojha-dvipa which identifies with it the seat of the Danaans of Troy. Meaning of Eglise is ‘agrasa’ or ‘agraja’ means ‘Elders’ who were considered as lower gods and were at par with the inhabitants of the ‘Heaven’. Notre-Dome means ‘Natya Dham’ means ‘Place of Dance’ that refers to the story of the Deva who danced there with dead of his wife. It is a surprise that migrants’ memory lived with this story that found its expression in naming the Abbey as Our Lady of Paris; here the name Paris refers to Paris, son of King Priam and Queen Hecuba in Homer’s Iliad. Notre Dome again is a cathedral in Ile de la Cite which means the cathedral refers to El or Ayila(Arles) country in Cete or Cite country under which was then the ancient city of Troy.
From Troy, and after its fall, Aeneas came to Rome, the original seat of the Roman on the bank of the river Dio; so the story behind the Abbey of Remi refers to its history prior to the time of migration. Whatever has been mentioned did not happen at the heritage site in France. Saint Nicasisus belonged to Ni-casius means his homeland was in Cassia or in Kasi. He was, it is said, beheaded(430 A.D.) by the Huns/Vandals, and latter’s story refers to migrants’ ‘first land’. That is the reason why there is a clear association of mythical artificer Daedalus who built the Labyrinth of King Minos in Crete or Cete.
Daedalus—refers to Daya/Dio/Dido; Daya was the name of the river on whose bank Dido’s palace as well as ancient Caesarea stood. It seems the Debadasi dance tradition in Temples originated from this name of Daedalus. Debadasi refers to a woman dancer who dances in the temple before the gods after the day’s rituals are over. Perhaps, word Labyrinth’s rot is in Lavana means the island where Dido’ s Palace stood.
