HMML microfilmed two Benedictine collections at the the Real Academia de la Historia.

San Millán de la Cogolla. Benedictine abbey in La Rioja, not far from Nájera. Its antiquity can be seen in the attendance of its abbot at the councils of Toledo during the Visigothic period. The abbey was suppressed in 1835 and its manuscripts were deposited in the Real Academia de la Historia. The abbey was located near the Camino de Santiago and was often visited by pilgrims.

San Pedro de Cardeña. One of the oldest Benedictine Benedictine monasteries in Spain located south of Burgos near Santo Domingo de Silos. The monastery was visited by pilgrims to visit the tomb of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, el Cid Campeador. Upon its suppression in 1835, its manuscripts were deposited in the Real Academia de la Historia.
