O Abade João (Montemor-o-Velho)

Castelo de Montemor-o-Velho
Interior do Castelo
Interior do Castelo
Capela da Seiça (ou Ceiça)

Nos tempos conturbados da Reconquista, habitaria no Castelo de Montemor um abade de nome João.

O Abade teria um familiar de nome Garcia Janes que se terá passado para a fé inimiga, ou seja, o islamismo. Em Córdova, o Califa local deu-lhe um exército enorme com o qual veio atacar Montemor-o-Velho.

O Abade João e os soldados do Castelo defenderam-se como puderam mas, perante tantos inimigos, cedo se aperceberam que a resistência teria o tempo contado. Numa atitude desesperada, o Abade mandou degolar os velhos, as mulheres e as crianças para que ninguém caísse vivo nas mãos dos inimigos.

Ele e os homens válidos saíram então pela porta principal do Castelo para morrer lutando com as armas nas mãos. Curiosamente, o ataque desesperado foi tão forte que o exército muçulmano foi completamente destroçado.

Acontecera o impensável: os cristãos eram vencedores mas tinham ficado viúvos, sem pais e sem filhos.

Voltaram então ao Castelo, em desespero, pedindo perdão a Deus pela sua atitude e por não terem acreditado na Sua força. Foi nessa altura que aconteceu o grande milagre: todos os degolados ressuscitaram e a vida retomou o seu curso normal.

No entanto, todos eles ficaram com a cicatriz no pescoço para que o episódio não fosse esquecido.

A lenda ainda não acaba aqui ,uma vez que depois desta vitória resolveram perseguir o inimigo tendo morto mais de 70 mil mouros, até chegarem a um sítio onde o Abde João terá gritado "Cessa! Cessa", pois entendia que deveria acabar ali aquele ataque. Por isso esse lugar recebeu o nome de Seiça e foi aí que o Abade joão foi enterrado.

Os milagres continuaram e chegaram a ser presenciados por D. Afonso Henriques que, muitos anos depois, pode verificar que as ossadas do Abade João mediam 11 palmos, ou seja, afinal era um gigante.

Sorte D. Afonso Henriques não ter pedido autorização ao IPPAR para abrir o túmulo, pois ainda hoje estaria à espera de uma resposta positiva.

Ou será que o IPPAR se está a vingar do facto de D. Afonso Henriques ter mandado abrir o túmulo sem autorização da Ministra?

Especulações.

As histórias que vêem atrás dos sabores, imagino eu!
Não conhecia este episódio, dum sabor riquíssimo, pelo significado ímpar destas lendas, que, de certeza, terão o seu fundamento em factos que, com o tempo, terão sido empolados chegando aos nossos dias com um sabor refinado.
Um abraço, Tozé.
