Abbaye de Bénédictins fondée vers 644 par saint Fursy et Archinoald, maire du palais de Clovis II.

On trouve parfois cette abbaye sous le nom de Saint-Fursy, qui est en fait le nom d'une des trois paroisses de Lagny.

Abbey of Benedictines founded about 644 by Saint Fursy and Archinoald, mayor of the palace of Clovis II.

Destroyed by the Normans, it was restored by Herbert III, Count of Vermandois, who was buried there in 993.

It adhered to the reform of Saint-Maur in 1641. Closed to the Revolution and sold as national property in 1802.

The abbey has become a town hall since 1842, the abbey church became a parish church under the name of Notre-Dame-des-Ardents. -

This abbey is sometimes found under the name of Saint-Fursy, which is in fact the name of one of the three parishes of Lagny.
