The Abbey of Saint-Germain d’Auxerre was a Benedictine monastery in central France, dedicated to its founder Saint Germain of Auxerre, the bishop of Auxerre, who died in 448. The abbey reached the apex of its cultural importance during the Carolingian era; the source for its early history is an account of the Miracula Sancti Germani Episcopi Autissiodorensis (“Miracles of Saint Germain, Bishop of Auxerre”) written before ca. 880. The earliest surviving architectural remains are also of the ninth century.
