2 days conference - open to all

The Benedictine monks of Saint-Maur’s congregation arrived at the Abbey of Lagrasse in 1663.

Their Benedictine Congregation, the most famous of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, included scholars, theologians, architects...

Their work managed to unite science and piety in a solid erudition, of which Bernard and Jean Mabillon Monfaucon were the most illustrious representatives. Over 350 years have passed since their installation in Lagrasse but their memory and work still remain. This is an opportunity for ASMVAL to honor them .
