Baptême du fort Roi Clovis. Fragment d’une des Toiles peintes (XVe Siècle) de la ville de Reims. Baptism of King Clovis. Fragment of one of the Tapestries (15th Century) of the town of Rheims.

FOR the preservation of this statue, and the one supposed to represent Clotilda the queen of Clovis, we are indebted to the zeal of Alexandre Lenoir, who placed them in his museum of national antiquities. They formerly stood, with four others, at the portal of the ancient church of Notre Dame at Corbeil, a town about twenty miles to the south-east of Paris. But their companions perished with the church they embellished, and these figures, the only remains of its former magnificence, have been transferred from the museum to be placed at the entrance to the vaults of the magnificent church of St. Denis, the resting place of the long line of sovereigns of whose power Clovis laid the foundation.

The Migration Period in Europe, 395-527 A. D.

ON the death of THEODOSIUS THE GREAT, in 395 A.D., the Empire was divided between his sons. Flavius Arcadius taking the eastern, Flavius Honorius the western, half. Four Prefectures have now become a fixed territorial division; the realm of Honorius embraces the Prefectures of Gaul and Italy, that of Arcadius the Prefectures of Illyricum (Illyria) and the East (The Diocese of Western Illyricum belongs to the Prefecture of Italy.). About the same time the invasion of Greece by the Visigoths under Alaric I (396 A. D.) began the series of movements which resulted in the breaking up of the western half of the Empire into German kingdoms-the great historical feature of the fifth century.
