The Black Monastery was a convention of Sabbat vampires in 1666 CE where many of the Sabbat Paths of Enlightenment were developed into their modern forms. 

The MonasteryEdit

The physical monastery where the convention took place was located in Basel, Switzerland on the Swiss border with both France and Germany. It was a former Augustine monastery similar to the Hospice of St. Bernard.

Development of the PathsEdit

Several major Paths of Enlightenment were either initially founded at the Black Monastery or greatly refined there. Developers and their Paths include:
