Abbey of Corbie

Resource Toolbox

Benedictine abbey in Picardy, founded, 657, by Saint Bathilde, with monks from Luxeuil. Under Saint Adelhard the monastic school became famous and sent a colony to establish Corvey abbey in Saxony. The buildings destroyed by fire, 1137, were later restored. Mazarin was among the commendatory abbots of Corbie. At the incorporation of the abbey into the Congregation of Saint-Maur in 1618 its declining fortunes revived. At its suppression in 1790 the buildings were partly demolished but the church still remains with fine portal and towers; the library was transferred to Saint-Germain-des-Pres in 1624. Paschasius Radbert was one of the outstanding scholars of Corbie.
