The women's monastery of Ligueux was founded at the beginning of the XNUMXth century, under the Benedictine rule, in the archpriesthood of Thiviers.

The first abbess, Maximaira, is cited in the cartulary of Ligueux, during a donation made on May 15, 1115, in the hands of Guillaume d'Auberoche, bishop of Périgueux.

In 1165, this same abbess, it seems, made an exchange with the abbot of Sauve Majeure. 
She gave him the chapel of Nauves, in the parish of Beaupouyet, archpriest of Vanxains, and she received in exchange the priory of Saint-Pardoux, near Sainte-Foy, in the diocese of Agen,
which took the name of Petit-Ligueux, or quite simply, Ligueux.
