Other Comments: Ninove is a community in Belgium, 20 km west of Brussels. A famous Abbey in its own right, it preserves one of the earliest lists of houses in our Order (Mss. Ninivensis). The Abbey Church survives as a parish church, but the Abbey itself is totally destroyed.
* This listing (and the numbers, with a few adjustments after 1995) is based on the map contained in Kaspar Elm's Norbert von Xanten: Adliger, Ordensstifter, Kirchenfürst, Wienand Verlag, Köln, 1984, page 328-329.
