With its ancient origin, the name of Séverac l’Eglise comes from « Severi Ager », field of Severus, a Roman general. 


A fortified castle (Point n°5) was situated where the old church was built later (demolished in 1900 – nowadays the school’s playground). The castle was surrounded by a moat, of which some traces remain today.


The castle was composed of fortified houses, whose cellars were used as food reserves during religious wars and periods of trouble.
