The Abbot usually lacks archers with his default castles for protecting his farms, manning his towers, moat digging and attacking, as he doesn't buy bows even when having tons of gold.
Though, with a big enough number of fletchers he will have dozens and dozens of them, strengthening him a lot.
The Abbot usually has more gold than he needs, so (if not for design) I'd even remove all chapels with fletchers if I were asked how to improve him. Negative fear factor might boost his bow production, but that has to be balanced out for each castle design.
To provide some numbers: Having an Abbot that has 3 archers at each of the 10 archer spots, patrols his farms with big squads of archers (20 to 30+) and uses 30-50 archers in each of his attacks is perfectly possible if he produces enough bows to recruit those numbers of archers.
