The large Benedictine Monastery of Disibodenberg was built in 1108 by Archbishop Ruthard of Mainz (c. 11th Century - 1109 CE). According to tradition, St. Disibod of Ireland had settled what became known as Disibodenberg in 640 CE. Disibodenberg Monastery was home to St. Hildegard of Bingen (1198 - 1179 CE) for around 40 years.
