A document of 1729 traces the Abbey of Rivet to the time of Charlemagne. It was probably a Benedictine monastery.
This monastery was affiliated to the Cistercian Order in 1189, by the Abbey of Ponteaux, itself of the filiation of Pontigny. In 1264, a Bull of Pope Urban IV took the Rivet under its protection and exempted it from the jurisdiction of the bishop of Bazas. The King of England, Henry III Plantagenet, undertook to protect him. The church dates from this period with its walls more than a metre thick.

At the time of the Revolution, only 2 monks rema
