Full Description


Written in the 12th century by monks at the Benedictine abbey of Morigny, the Chronicle describes the abbey's foundation, its purchase by King Philip I, its difficulties surviving its initial poverty, and its quarrel over proprietorships with the canons of the church of Saint-Martin in Old Etampes.
