abbey of Saint Emmeram [audio icon]

A former Benedictine monastery at Ratisbon, Germany, traditionally founded by Saint Emmeram, probably around 652, and enlarged and endowed by Charlemagne c.800. The abbots ranked as princes of the Empire and had a seat in the imperial diets. Early in the 19th century the monastery was confiscated and the buildings appropriated as a residence for the Prince of Thurn and Taxis.
