Thanks in advance

Restitution of Utstein Abbey (in Norwegian Utstein Kloster)

Post  servitutt on Sat 7 Aug 2010 - 0:33

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - Utstein Abbey (in Norwegian Utstein Kloster) is Norway's best-preserved medieval monastery, located on the island of Mosterøy in Rennesøy municipality, Rogaland county.The abbey, dedicated to Saint Laurence, was founded in its present location in the reign of King Magnus VI of Norway (Magnus Lagabøte) (1263-1280). It was a house of Augustinian Canons. It appears however that this community was the one previously established as St. Olav's Abbey, Stavanger, one of the earliest Augustinian monasteries in Norway if not the very earliest: the exact date of its foundation is unknown, but it was well-established by 1160.

At its height, about 20–30 monks lived there, with twice as many lay people working on the building, the cooking and the farming. The abbey owned extensive lands, and could feed about 250 people a year.

It was dissolved in 1537 in the Reformation and was given in fee to Trond Ivarsson, after which it served as a private residence for many years.
