Author 'Merlin42' (Id 127269 ) : Priory fortify Champdieu Loire in 980 42 This is a group of Benedictine monks settled in the Auvergne Champdieu going to build the entire church priory. The work began in the eleventh century by the church. The three wings monastic buildings are placed around the cloister. The church and the priory are strengthened, the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, with several elements of defensive battlements raised in the foothills across the existing buildings around a watchtower in a corner and a big round tower protecting the former entrance to the cloister and parapet walk. Such attributes may seem incongruous military on a religious building but can be explained by the dual function of the prior, who was also lord. When fortification of the village, he protected his dwelling place like a house, to symbolize his lordly power.
