Historical background


Limousin - ABBEY OF SAINT-MARTIAL OF LIMOGES

(Twelfth century)

Saint-Martial was the first bishop of Limoges in the late third century, commissioned by Saint-Denis from the hagiographic tradition. The abbey was a Cluniac foundation and fell within the Order. It is often opposed to the viscounts of Limoges who imitated his coinage. After taking possession of the house in Brittany, Coinage of the abbey of Saint-Martial lost its importance. It is not mentioned in the order of 1315.
