St. DENIS

Christian Saint

Also known as Denys

Headless Patron Saint of France in General and Paris in particular

Beheaded on Martyr’s Hill, later to be known as Montmartre, he carried his own head four kilometers to the abbey which bore his name.

This place was later to become the traditional burial place of French Kings.

Now he’s the Patron of Paris and also those possessed by spirits. No word on whether he’s also the patron of people carrying their own heads.
