Seeon Abbey was a Benedictine monastery in the municipality of Seeon-Seebruck in the rural district of Traunstein in Bavaria, Germany.
Seeon Abbey was founded in 994 by Pfalzgraf Aribo I of Bavaria and settled by Benedictine monks from St. Emmeram’s Abbey, Regensburg. The monastery is on an island in the lake Seeoner See, near the settlement of Seeon. The abbey soon developed a significant scriptorium, producing manuscripts not only for the abbey’s own use but also for other monasteries and churches. Their most important client was Emperor Henry II, who presented many volumes to the Bishopric of Bamberg, which he had founded [1].
