Abbaye de Saint-Polycarpe - Saint-Polycarpe

Saint Polycarp (Saint Policarpi in Occitan), has 165 inhabitants (census 2009), which are called Saint-Polycarpiens. The village of Saint-Polycarpe is located on the Meridian Green, the Paris Meridian. The Saint-Polycarpe brook crosses the tributary of the Aude 7 km from Limoux, 8 km from Saint-Hilaire, 24 km from Carcassonne, 31 km from Mouthoumet and 42 km from Lagrasse.
Abbaye de Saint-Polycarpe - Saint-Polycarpe
The name of Saint Polycarp given to the abbey will also become the name of the village, the name of the primitive village being Rivograndi: Rieugrand. This patronage of Saint Polycarp suggests that the abbey held relics of the saint of Asia Minor, where he was born in the late 1st century AD. Bishop of Smyrna, today Izmir in Turkey, this church father was martyred in 155 under Marcus Aurelius, accused of atheism because he refuses to sacrifice to the gods officials, among which is the emperor. Condemned to the stake but miraculously spared by the flames, he then stabbed.
  The Abbey of Saint-Polycarpe is one of the oldest monastery's in the country and region of Rhedez. Its creation is nevertheless after that of the the founding of the famous Abbey of Alet, which is nearby. A Spanish nobleman named Attala left his homeland - which had been invaded by the Saracens (*), and then settled in the region called Rhedesium and retired to a small monastery, almost a simple hermitage, situated on the banks of the stream called Rieugrand and which bore the name of the monastery of St. Polycarp. Attala became prior of the convent and the place, and thanks to its wealth, became largely endowed. Charlemagne granted the abbot Attala certain privileges which were confirmed and expanded by his successors, Charles the Bald and Louis the Debonair. Nevertheless it is, if we can say so, a courtesy we give the convent of Saint-Polycarpe the name of an abbey. It was originally a simple priory and despite repeated competitions from the abbots of Lagrasse, St Polycarpe always remained under the control of the Abbey of Alet. Indeed, in a council held at Toulouse, in 1119, under the presidency of Pope Calixtus II, the only priests who had the right to attend the meeting, in conjunction with the bishops of the region, were those of Lagrasse, Aniane and Alet. Therefore, the Sueperiors of the other monasteries of the region were merely only trustees or priors. It was precisely during this council that it was confirmed in favour of the Abbey of Alet, possession of the monasteries of St. Polycarp and Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet.
