Flodoard de Reims, Épernay, Marne (51)

It's always interesting to come back to Épernay – and this is our third visit so far this year – because it's one of those towns that seem inexhaustible in terms of cultural information. Flodoard, 'Historien 864–966'? According to Wikipédia, Flodoard de Reims was born in Épernay, educated in Reims (where he died), and was a historian, chronicler and poet (all in Latin). One of his noted works is a long poem on Jesus Christ and the saints.
