Oelenberg Abbey today

From a heritage and artistic point of view

Of the buildings of the past, only a few parts remain: the lower part of the choir of the 12th century chapel, the transept of the old abbey church (1486) and its baroque nave (1755). A processional cross from the 12th century, a large crucifix from the 14th century and two beautiful statues of Our Lady from the 15th and 18th centuries are also preserved. In the old Jesuit church, the Saint-Michel and Saint-Léon chapels have been built.

The Saint-Michel chapel has Gothic vaults and Romanesque openings. Three keystones are preserved there with coats of arms dating in particular from 1486. ​​The chapel of Saint-Léon preserves parts of the 12th century in its apse. We can see capitals with palmettes. One of them represents two heads separated by a cross and designated by the letters S.P.A. and S.P.E. (Saint Paul and Saint Peter).

Another chapel called "the Mount of Olives" was in the 12th century an isolated building. Later, it was included in the other buildings and served as a cellar until 1895. At that time, it was dismantled stone by stone and rebuilt in the current novitiate in 1921. Its lower parts are Romanesque; the keystones are Gothic. In the Chapter, is exposed a painting of the XVIIIth century, recently restored, representing the scene of "the lactation of Saint Bernard". It comes, along with three other reliquaries from the same period, from the Cistercian Abbey of Lucelle which disappeared during the Revolution.

Three reliquaries from Oelenberg are also found in the parish church of Reiningue. The oldest, a gift from Pope Leo IX, is a partly gilded silver box. It dates from the 11th century. It contains relics of Saint Roman. Another reliquary, said of Saint Romain, is a 12th century work. It contains relics of Saint Roman, Saint Lawrence and other saints. Finally, a reliquary bust of Saint Roman, from the 14th century, contains a relic of the saint's skull.

Nowadays, the monastery has an important library of more than one hundred thousand books.
