Long Description:

"Between 923 and 925 Archbishop Seulphe decided to build a small castle and a rampart around the abbey to protect it.

Indeed, at the end of the 9th century, the region of Reims was the prey of the raids of looting of the Vikings who went up rivers and rivers on their drakkars.

Besides, in 882, Archbishop Hincmar, already fearing that the rich Saint-Remi abbey and its abbey church were the vistimes, was forced to transport the shrine containing the body of Saint Remi and the Sainte-Ampoule to Epernay, in order to shelter them. "

" Entre 923 et 925 l’archevêque Seulphe décida de faire construire un petit château et un rempart autour de l’abbaye pour la protéger.

En effet, à la fin du IXe siècle, la région de Reims fut la proie des raids de pillage des Vikings qui remontaient fleuves et rivières sur leurs drakkars.

D’ailleurs en 882, l’archevêque Hincmar, craignant déjà que la riche abbaye Saint-Remi et son église abbatiale en soient les vistimes, fut obligé de faire transporter la châsse contenant le corps de saint Remi et la Sainte-Ampoule à Epernay, afin de les mettre à l’abri. "
