The Carolingian Westwork and the Civitas Corvey heritage site stands along the western side of the river Weser and on the east of the town of Höxter, in North Rhine-Westphalia, close to the border of Lower Saxony.
The Weser river is identified with other two rivers, Fulda and Werra meeting at the confluence near Hanno-versch Munde; the Hanseatic city of Bremen and the town of Norden-ham at the foot of the Butja-dingen Peninsula pinpoints interesting geographical features of this river when it is seen through its western tributary originating in Thuringia.
According to Unesco, ‘ Corvey was one of the most influential monasteries of the Frankish Empire. Its missionary task was highly important with regard to politico-religious processes in many parts of Europe. .…..The structure and the decoration refer to the world of ideas of Carolingian times which has become an essential part of western history. Corvey is linked with cultural centres in Europe through historical tradition ….. The deserted town close to the Westwork and the monastic compound preserves archaeological evidence of a quite important settlement of the Early and the Late Middle Ages…’
Church’s wonderful history refers to a period in between AD 822 and 885 when Northern Europe inherited a vast energetic glorious historical identity through different monastic structures. At the site of the Corvey, the east-west route here is called Hellweg; standing with the memory of St Vitus, its history links St Denis and tradition of Fourteen Holy Helpers; meaning of ‘Helpers’ is so wide that it covers mostly the holy pages of all world religions. The Bible knows Ezion-Geber as Anasara, and the Quran calls ‘Anasara’ as ‘Helpers’; Indian puranic tradition refers to Anasara as a special ‘temple treatment’ in Sri Jagannath cult before the Car Festival when the Tri-deities are treated with a king of medicine because of their suffering from fever. The first abbot of Corvey was Charlemagne’s cousin, Ansgar(Adalard of Corbie,), who became the ‘Apostle of Scandinavia’ in 823 A.D. it is important to search for the meaning of ‘Reich-Sabtei’ as the word ‘Maa-Sabtei’ is linked to the ‘Mothers’ who were then standing with Jesus Christ in the crucial time of his crucifixion. Here ‘Maa–sabtei’ means ‘step-mother’; and Reich–sabtei similarly refers to the Abbot(Abdhuta in Indian puranic tradition) in the ‘Reich’ which was then just next to the Emperor only in exercising the state power; Sabata is also a ‘title’. Meaning of ‘Westwerk’ here is misunderstood which is geographically related to Corvey as it stands in the neighbourhood of Corvey or Kubera; it refers to ‘Asta-arch’ means the ‘Eight Holy Places’ including the Arc/arch at See. Charlemagne was the first ‘King-migrant’ to Europe in 8th c A.D. who established churches at Hildesheminand(Hil-desh-eminand) and Halber-stadt which were anciently neighbourly both to Paderborn(synod held in 815) and Hethis; here Neuhaus refers to Nahusa of other ancient literature that identifies a puranic king in this name; Neuhaus im Solling marks the King Nahusa of Sulla or Solling which again pinpoints the region of ancient Jerusalem. Hethis exactly means the country of Hathis or the Hastis means the Elephantine. It is neighbourly to Paderborn as same as Pundrabardhan or Paundra; historians observes that first monks who came from Corbie Abbey in Picardy in 816 set up the Probstei means ‘a branch of the motherhouse’. From where they moved to the Villa Huxori. Probstei is as same as Bubastys which refers to ancient Babylon; all names attached with Corvey describe a region that identifies the holy ‘Maa-magne’ means Mother Mangala near the settlements of Frank people.
