Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. F camp Abbey is a Benedictine abbey in Normandy, northern France.The abbey was the first producer of B n dictine, a herbal liqueur, based on brandy. It was founded in 658 by Waningus, a Merovingian count, for nuns. Another convent he founded in 660, near the site of the Precious Relic, was destroyed by the Vikings in 842. Around the Ducal palace, the foundations of two chapels have been found. After more Viking raids in 851, Richard I of Normandy rebuilt the church. It was Richard II who invited Guillaume de Volpiano in 1001 to rekindle the life of the abbey, under Benedictine rules.show more
