Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Imperial Abbey of Corvey was a Benedictine monastery on the River Weser, 2km northeast of H xter, now in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It was first founded in 815 among the recently coverted Saxons on a site called Hethis by Charlemagne's cousins Wala and Adelard, with monks from Corbie Abbey in Picardy, under the joint patronage of the Emperor Louis the Pious and the abbot of the older foundation, whence the new one derived its name.show more
