Other Comments: A famous abbey of the O.S.A. initially, founded in the 11th century.  Under the leadership of Abbot Rudolph (1120-30) the residents transferred to our Order.  This house had a profound effect on the expansion of the Order throughout Lotharingia, and remained faithful to the most humble and sacred tenets of the Rule.
