Medieval Abbays

This monastic house founded in 1047 by Geoffroy Martel and his wife Agnès de Bourgogne was the first female convent in Saintonge. It was highly prestigious up until the French Revolution when the Benedictines were harried out. The Church of Notre-Dame dates back to the origins in the 11th and 12th Centuries. The arch mouldings above the portal and the capitals on the belltower are magnificent examples Saintonge Romanesque art.There is a permanent exhibition in the 17th Century religious buildings recounting the history of the site. Nowadays the Abbey belongs to the prestigious grouping of Centres Culturels de Rencontre (Cultural Meeting Places) which produce a very well reputed festival every year in July, "le Festival de Saintes"

Medieval Bible

Medieval bible
The Latin Bible of the Middle Ages lacked a standard canonical version and differed considerably from modern Bible edition. It could consist of one or many volumes and varied considerably in size. The Latin translation could correspond to those we find in contemporary versions or be traced to older sources. Even the order of the biblical books could vary. The Latin Bible of the Middle Ages also contained texts which later came to be regarded as non-canonical. Only during the 16th century, did the Bible develop the form we are familiar with today.
