Aunepert (died c. 724) was the second Abbot of Farfa, holding office from the death of the monastery's founder, Thomas of Maurienne (c. 720), until his own death a few years later. Little is known of Aunepert save that he was from Toulouse, then in the Merovingian kingdom of Aquitaine.[1] By 724 he had been succeeded as abbot by Lucerius when Duke Transamund II of Spoleto granted "a church and its lands" to Farfa.[2]
