Fulda

4
Fulda is a city in Hesse, Germany; it is located on the river Fulda and is the administrative seat of the Fulda district . In 1990, the town hosted the 30th Hessentag state festival.HistoryMiddle AgesIn 744 Saint Sturm, a disciple of Saint Boniface, founded the Benedictine monastery of Fulda as one of Boniface's outposts in the reorganization of the church in Germany. It later served as a base from which missionaries could accompany Charlemagne's armies in their political and military campaigns to fully conquer and convert pagan Saxony.The initial grant for the abbey was signed by Carloman, Mayor of the Palace in Austrasia (in office 741-747), the son of Charles Martel. The support of the Mayors of the Palace, and later of the early Pippinid and Carolingian rulers, was important to Boniface's success. Fulda also received support from many of the leading families of the Carolingian world. Sturm, whose tenure as abbot lasted from 747 until 779, was most likely related to the Agilolfing dukes of Bavaria.
