Didier Leleu (deputy general secretary of the Fédération des Sociétés d’Histoire et d’Archéologie de l’Aisne) will talk about this abbey, which joined the Prémontré order late in its history.
The Revolution transformed its beautiful buildings, just rebuilt in 1787, into a sugar refinery. The rediscovered history of the former abbey of Sainte-Elisabeth de Genlis recounts the strong links between this prayer house and the rural life of the Chauny region?
Join us at the Archives départementales de l’Aisne at 6pm for this lecture organized by the Société Historique de Haute-Picardie!
