Foundation Information
 

More foundation information is necessary about this house of Premonstratensian women. It was a female community from 1231 to circa 1448; thereafter it becmae a Cistercian (male) priory until 1776. Final dissolution of the community occurred in 1802.

 
Manuscript Sources
 

Manuscripts from the community's library date primarily from the fifteenth and sixteenth century and probably reflect the holdings of the Cistercian priory rather than the earlier female community. They include a copy of Bernard of Clairveaux's Sermons and Johann Nider's Formicarius. Most works are preserved in the Landesbibliothek in Darmstadt. One work from the community by Joh. Gerson is located in the University library in Düsseldorf.
