Juvigny-sur-Loison ou l'esprit bénédictin
Ici reposent à jamais les reliques de Sainte-Scholastique qui furent à l’origine de la fondation d’une abbaye bénédictine en 874 par la reine Richilde. Quarante abbesses présidèrent à la destinée du couvent jusqu’à la révolution française, en 1792, où il fut vendu et démantelé par ses acquéreurs. L’hôpital (1629) maintenant occupé par l’association Perce-Neige, la maison des Chapelains (1634), la brasserie et le moulin attestent encore aujourd’hui de l’importance de ce couvent de moniales ; ainsi que cet imposant pan de muraille crénelée, entourant jadis toute l’abbaye, qui se dresse devant vous près de l’église.

The relics of Sainte Scolastique (which led to the founding of a Benedictine abbey in 874 by Queen Richilde) will forever lie here. The convent saw forty abbesses come and go until the French Revolution in 1792, when it was sold and demolished by its new owners. The hospital built in 1629 (which is now the home of the Perce-Neige Association), the Chaplains’ house (built in 1634), the brew-house and the mill today show the scale of this convent and its imposing crenellated wall which used to surround the entire abbey and today can be seen near the church.
