This database provides access to nearly 800 photographs that document architectural sites sponsored by the Order of Prémontré. The database is searchable by country, location, dedication, keyword, or the Premonstratensian designation of circary

The collection of photographs of Premonstratensian architectural sites was gathered over the years by Rt. Rev. Astrik L. Gabriel, O. Praem., and resides in the Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame. All of these archival photographs date prior to World War II, and are important documents of the many sites which were damaged or destroyed during the War. Some of the same photographs in our possession also appear on the international website for the Order of Prémontré
