Saint-Hubert, Abbey of


Monastery in the Ardennes in Belgian Luxembourg (originally Andagium ). It was founded c. 704 by St. Beregis, the chaplain of Pepin of Heristal, as an abbey of Augustinian canons, and was reformed by Bishop Walcaud of Liège (d. 836), who introduced Benedictine monks and brought the body of St. hubert of maastricht to the abbey. It was reformed by Bishop Richar in 942. The abbey was brought into the investiture struggle by Bishop Otbert, then reformed in 1618 by the Congregation of St. Vanne (see verdun-sur-meuse, abbey of), and suppressed in 1796. The present late-Gothic abbey church was built between 1525 and 1564. The heavy, baroque façade was added in 1700. It was raised to the rank of minor basilica in 1927, and is today a parish church visited by many pilgrims because of the tomb of St. Hubert. The abbey buildings, rebuilt after 1729, are now occupied by a state-supported school.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
