Historical Timeline of St-Savin-Sur-Gartempe Abbey

890
Foundation of the Anzy-le-Duc Priory by a local noble couple, Letbald and Altaric. The first prior is a prominent monk from Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe named Hugh, later known as St. Hugh of Poitiers. Thanks to Hugh's involvement with the creation of the Abbey of Cluny, Anzy-le-Duc will enjoy a close relationship with that great foundation.
