In 1120/21 the archbischop of Cologne Friedrich von Schwarzenberg made him abbot of the Sankt-Heribert abbey at K÷ln-Deutz. Rupert wrote a total of 42 commentaries on the bible which made him the most important theologian of the Benedictine order at that time and also the most prolific author of his age. Many of his commentaries where enriched with new insights on points which were not touched since Saint-Augustine. His influence lasted well into the 16th century ( e.g. Petrus Canisius). .
