Establishment of the Benedictine Confederation by Pope Leo XIII



12 July 1883

The Order of Saint Benedict is a Roman Catholic religious order of independent monastic communities, observing the Rule of Staint Benedict. Within the order, each individual community maintains its own autonomy, while the organization as a whole exists to represent their mutual interests. The Benedictine Confederation, which was established on 12 July 1883 by Pope Leo XIII is the international governing body of the order.
