[The Diocese of Augsburg 3. The Augustinian Abbey of Bernried]
Rev. by Scherbaum, Walburga
Aims and Scope
Bernried, an abbey of Augustinian canons founded in the 12th century, was home to a chapter of Augustinian canons until its secularization in 1803. A foundation of Count Otto and his wife Adelheid of Valley, it was one of the chapters founded during the reform movement of the regular canons. During six centuries the abbey was a creative center for the region around Bernried at Lake Starnberg. Following the well-established pattern of Germania Sacra, Walburga Scherbaum gives a summary of the history, constitution, spiritual and religious life, ownership history and in particular the individuals who lived and worked in the abbey from its beginning to its dissolution.
