Only five years later, he was ordained priest and then at the age of twenty five, elected abbot. He was a great supporter of reforms and served as a papal legate. He helped Pope Nicholas II and later Pope Gregory VIII. Furthermore, he founded a hospital for lepers. He died in 1120 after having served as abbot for about 60 years.
