The Abbey, Its Founders, Its History, and the Congregation of St. Victor
St. Victor was an abbey and for a while a congregation of abbeys of canons regular who followed the Rule of St. Augustine. Canons regular were clergy who lived in common like monks, but almost always followed the Rule of St. Augustine. Their monasteries usually had a customary (book detailing the observances of daily life), and these often drew on monastic (Benedictine/Cistercian) models, so the observances of canons often resembled those of monks. The canons regular have not fared as well as the monastic orders in the post French Revolution era. The best known congregation of them are the Premonstratensians, also known as the Norbertines after their founder St. Norbert.
