Gingerbread may have been brought to Europe in 992 AD by the Armenian monk Gregory of Nicopolis (in modern-day western Greece). Leaving Nicopolis to live in Bondaroy (north-central France), near the town of Pithiviers, he stayed there for seven years and taught gingerbread baking to French Christians. Throughout the centuries, many cultures have celebrated the art of gingerbread making, with even a gingerbread guild established in Germany in the 15th century.
