Prüm Abbey

Prüm Abbey is a former Benedictine monastery in Prüm/Lorraine, now in the Diocese of Trier (Germany), founded by a Frankish widow Bertrada, and her son Charibert, count of Laon, on 23 June 720. The church, built in 1721 by the Elector Ludwig, is now a parish church. The remaining monastic buildings are now used for a secondary school named the Regino-Gymnasium after the Abbot Regino of Prüm. The sandals of Christ are considered to be the most notable of the many relics of the church; they are mentioned by Pepin in the deed of 762. He is said to have received them from Rome as a gift of Pope Zachary or Pope Stephen II.
