A major location in Koudelka, Shadow Hearts, and Shadow Hearts: Covenant.

Built by St. Daniel Scotius before the 13th Century, he was responsible for founding the site and erecting the magnificent Monastery. However the site foundations are much older, having been built possibly thousands of years before.

In its long history, it has served many roles, including that of an army barracks and a prison, in which thousands of people were murdered or tortured.

The site, both over-and-underground, is an extremely important location in all the games it's featured in.

KoudelkaEdit

The only location in Koudelka, it was burned to the ground as a result of what happened during that fateful Halloween night.

It was purchased by Patrick Heyworth some six-to-nine years before the beginning of the game, as a result of the death of his wife, Elaine Heyworth.

He was accompanied by Ogden and Bessy, who became the caretakers to the place. With aid from Ogden, and with the advice from Cardinal Albert Simon, who was also responsible for selling Patrick the Emigre Manuscript, he began his attempt at bringing Elaine back from the grave.

Years later, in 1898, the wandering medium, Koudelka Iasant, summoned by a ghostly cry for help, headed to the monastery in order to investigate. There she came across the injured Edward Plunkett, who ventured to the monastery based on rumours that there were whores.

Later the pair came across Father James O' Flaherty, who had traveled to the abbey in search of the Emigre Manuscript.

Finding the acclaimed mystic and scholar, Roger Bacon asleep in a coffin, hidden in the Library, they learn about the history of Patrick's experiment, and decided to free Elaine's spirit and defeat the evil that her body had become.

After burning down the Tree of Life, and being chased to the bell tower, the party managed to finally lay Elaine's body to rest, though at the cost of James' life. The fire that they started, consumed what remained of the Monastery.

Sixteen years after the events of Koudelka, in 1913, Albert Simon captured Koudelka Iasant and brought her to the ruins of the monastery. Simon sought to use her as a conduit to unleash the Neameto Float, an ancient floating temple, which would, in turn, summon Meta-God, an alien of near god-like power, who would proceed to destroy the world.

Yuri Hyuga and company fought with Simon and his contract, the demon Amon, in the same room where the ritual to resurrect Elaine was performed years before, to try and stop Simon. They succeeded in defeating Amon, but this played into Simon's plans, for Amon's defeat released enough energy to summon the Float.

Father O' Flaherty's grave can be found in the exterior of the monastery.

The surface ruins cannot be visited in this game, but Yuri and his party can explore the expansive underground ruins of Nemeton. First to retrieve the Emigre Manuscript, and the second time for an optional sidequest, where they delve even deeper underground. At the very bottom they can confront the demon Orobas, who can be used as a summon for Anastasia.
