At the turn of the century, the Abbey had already affiliate other ten churches in the area, to which they added four more in the first half of the thirteenth century, index of importance in a short time. This time, so the first half of the 13th century, can be considered the most flourishing period for the Abbey, then begins a rapid and inexorable decline, given especially by the scarcity of economic resources. In 1261 the Abbey passed to the friars of the Teutonic order, making it the Centre of their activities in Apulia, where he remained until the second half of the fifteenth century. Left the scene also the Germans the Church administration, now considered Badia, is given in commendam to the Cardinals of the local diocese. In 1527, during the siege of Manfredonia, the troops of Odet de Foix occupy the convent, but needn't cause too much damage if already in 1538 the Church is officiated. In the 17th century the Church goes to the friars minor who, during their administration, operate some changes at the convent. In 1763, for example, is built what is today the part still habitable. The Franciscans leave the Church in the early 19th century, bringing with them the original wooden statue of Saint Leonard of the thirteenth century, the statue of our Lady and the relics of the body of Saint Martyr Celestine, which are transferred to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie di Manfredonia. The King of Naples Joachim Murat, by Decree of 21 January 1809, suppressing the St Leonard's Hospital, assigned revenues to the Hospital of Foggia, with the obligation to receive to keep the sick of San Leonardo. The Abbey was completely abandoned. The complex undergoes a series of damage during the second world war, repaired after the war by don Silvestro Mastrobuoni, reopening the Church for worship and became pastor. Currently still serves as the seat of the parish of Siponto.
