Historical Context
 

The chapter house was built in 1419, but at least one part of the stained glass --the crucifixion--dates from the 14th century. The chapter house contains the tomb of the first abbess, Sobriana d'Olzet, as well as those of nine other early abbesses and some noblewomen who lived in the convent.
