We spent all day on Saturday, July 5th on an excursion to St. Guilhem le Désert, where we visited the Abbaye de Gellone, a monastery where St. Guilhem  (in Occitain, William in French) stayed from the years 806-812.  It is believed that his cousin, Charlemagne, gave him part of the Holy Cross, now a relic in the Church.  In the nineteenth century, many sculptures were acquired by the American G.G. Barnard, which are now on display at the Cloisters Museum in New York.
