Little is known of its foundation, which was probably renewed by Sigismund, King of the Burgundians. About 522Abbot Ambrosius introduced the "Perpetual Psalmody," as practised by the Acremetre. Among its treasures is the famous chasse (reliquary) decorated with glass mosaic. Since 1840 its abbots have also been titular bishops of Bethlehem (Annuaire pontifical catholique, 1911,595).
