    Saint-Beno?t-sur-Loire is a commune in the Loiret department in north-central France. This town hosts the Abbaye de Fleury, also known as the Abbaye de Saint Beno?t (Saint Benedict Abbey). Founded around 630, it is one of the oldest abbeys of the Benedictine rule. In 660, the remains of Saint Benedict of Nursia were transferred to Saint Beno?t from Monte Cassino. The monastery, known for the Fleury Playbook, was pillaged and damaged multiple times over the course of history, including during the Norman conquests and the French Revolution. The current abbey church is in the Romanesque style and dates from the eleventh century. A community of approximately 40 monks currently resides in the monastery.
