      Our Lady of Glastonbury Abbey in Hingham, Massachusetts was founded in by Benet Lake Abbey in Wisconsin to carry on the year living tradition of St. Benedict ( CE), patriarch of western monasticism. We are a community of Benedictine monks committed to seeking God within the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church as specified by. 3. THE ABBEY OF GLASTONBURY. Round few places in England has so much legend grown up as round the abbey of Glastonbury. The origin of this monastic settlement, which seems almost alone to have carried the traditions of the British church in unbroken sequence down to Saxon times, is lost in obscurity nor have we space here to discuss the many legends concerning it.

      History Saxon era. King Ine of Wessex enriched the endowment of the community of monks established at Glastonbury and reputed to Medieval era. At the Norman Conquest in , the wealth of Glastonbury made it a prime prize. William the Conqueror Dissolution of the Monasteries. At Founder(s): King Ine of Wessex. Arthurian Toilets. To the north-east of the abbey church and just beyond the monks' quarters is a plumbing contraption with a mysterious sign REREDORTER. Elsewhere a map labels it Rere Dorter. This obscure term specifically means the latrine associated with a monastic establishment, which is usually located behind the dorter or sleeping quarters.

      Many poets, such as Robert de Boron wove Joseph's story into Arthurian legend. This idea was cemented further when John of Glastonbury (c. ) - a Benedictine monk and chronicler - assembled the history of Glastonbury Abbey. Unsurprisingly the chronicles refers to Arthurian . The name Glastonbury is associated with the Arthurian tradition in several ways. Most famously, Glastonbury is said to have been Avalon, the “apple isle,” where King Arthur was taken after his final battle. Avalon was said to have been a healing place, where Arthur could recover and await the time when he would be needed again.
