Abbaye de Montivilliers : chœur de lʹéglise abbatiale

Die Abtei Montivilliers (französisch Abbaye de Montevilliers), die der Stadt Montivilliers im heutigen Département Seine-Maritime unter seiner mittelalterlichen lateinischen Bezeichnung (Monasterium Viliare) den Namen gab, ist ein restauriertes ehemaliges Kloster.

Das Kloster Viliare wurde vom heiligen Philibert im späten 7. Jahrhundert als Frauenkloster gegründet. Im 9. Jahrhundert zerstörten die Wikinger die Gebäude vollständig. Unter der Leitung der Abtei Fécamp erfolgte Anfang des 11. Jahrhunderts der Neuaufbau, diesmal als Abtei für Männer. Herzog Robert verlieh dem Kloster im Jahre 1035 die Selbständigkeit und es wurde nun wieder ein Frauenkloster. Die Abtei gelangte in der Folgezeit in den Besitz zahlreicher Landgüter, die es der Äbtissin Elisabeth schließlich ermöglichten, ab der zweiten Hälfte des 11. Jahrhunderts mit dem Bau einer großen Klosterkirche zu beginnen. Das Bauwerk wurde im normannischen Baustil der Zeit Wilhelms des Eroberers errichtet. 1791 wurde das Kloster aufgehoben und danach wurde in der ehemaligen Abtei eine Salpeterfabrik und im 19. Jahrhundert eine Brauerei eingerichtet.

In den 1970er Jahren begann die Stadt Montivilliers, das Bauwerk zu renovieren. Die Arbeiten wurden im Jahr 2010 weitestgehend abgeschlossen und der Klosterkomplex kann heute besichtigt werden.

Die Abteikirche

Die Kirche des Klosters wurde ursprünglich im 11. Jahrhundert im romanischen Stil errichtet und gehört zu den großen Kirchen nach benediktinischer Art in der Normandie. Die Fassade stammt aus dem 12. Jahrhundert. Entgegen der ursprünglichen Planung erhielt die Abteikirche nur einen Turm. Im 14. Jahrhundert wurde oberhalb des Hauptportals ein gotisches Fenster eingebaut. Im 15. Jahrhundert wurden die ersten sieben Querbalken des Kirchenschiffes durch ein breiteres gotisches Schiff ersetzt. Nur die im 20. Jahrhundert restaurierte Südseite blieb im ursprünglichen romanischen Stil erhalten.

Die Abtei

Das Bauensemble der Abbaye de Montivilliers besteht aus folgenden Bereichen, die alle öffentlich zugänglich sind und überwiegend besichtigt werden können:

  • Der Kreuzgang, dessen ursprüngliches Aussehen nicht überliefert ist; in seiner heutigen Form wurde er im 21. Jahrhundert im mutmaßlich historischen Stil neu errichtet.
  • Der Kapitelsaal aus dem 11. Jahrhundert.
  • Das gotische Refektorium aus dem 13. Jahrhundert, das heute für wechselnde Kunstausstellungen genutzt wird.
  • Der Schlafsaal aus dem 13. Jahrhundert, der eine Dauerausstellung zur Stadt- und Abteigeschichte beherbergt.
  • Der Schlafsaal aus dem 16. Jahrhundert, der die Einrichtung und Entwicklung normannischer und englischer Abteien visualisiert. Der originale Dachstuhl aus Kastanienholz blieb erhalten.
  • Die Wohnung der Äbtissinnen, die heute als öffentliche Bibliothek genutzt wird; dieser Bauteil stammt weitgehend aus dem 18. Jahrhundert.

Rouen is the capital of the French region of Upper Normandy on the River Seine, 135 km (approximately 90 minutes drive) northwest from the centre of Paris. The city has a population of 110,000 and its metropolitan area includes some 520,000 inhabitants. It is where Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake, but the main reason for visiting is its incredible cathedral that inspired Monet to paint over 30 canvases. Rouen was the home of the author, Gustave Flaubert.

Understand

Rouen was for a long time France's second city, after Paris, which explains the richness of the town's artistic heritage. Today, it deserves a visit for its monuments, Gothic art being particularly well represented, but also for the charm of its alleyways and the many half-timbered houses there are.

The town is on the right bank of the River Seine, but today, includes the left bank (the Saint-Sever area in particular, on the south of the river), and the Île Lacroix.

See

  • Rouen Cathedral (la cathédrale de Rouen), +33 2 35 71 51 23. A stunning building that dates back to the 4th century and is a wonderful mixture of various architectural styles since then. A new spire built in the 19th century meant that it briefly qualified as the tallest building in the world. The façade of the cathedral was famously painted by Claude Monet at various times during the day - like his Haystacks series of paintings - capturing the subject in a variety of lights. In the summer after dark the city puts on a light show projecting some of Monet's cathedral paintings onto the façade of the cathedral itself, each showing lasts approximately 10 minutes and runs until about midnight. €2 for a guided tour. Rouen Cathedral on Wikipedia  
  • La Vieille Ville. Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in the center of la vieille ville. A simple field of wildflowers marks the spot of her martyrdom. Next to it is the modern Eglise de Jeanne d'Arc
