Abbey of Luxeuil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (487 words)
Columbanus was exiled from Luxeuil by King Thierry of France and the dowager Queen Brunehaut, and was succeeded as abbot by St. Eustace, who was the head of the monastic school, which came to enjoy a high reputation, and trained the noble youth of Gaul to be bishops throughout Gaul and beyond.
Luxeuil sent out monks to found houses at Bobbio, between Milan and Genoa, where Columbanus himself became abbot, and monasteries at Saint-Valéry and Remiremont.
From the 15th century the institution of commendatory abbots encouraged the decline of discipline, the Emperor Charles V curtailed the power of Luxeuil's abbots, and there was a further reform in 1634.
