[The Bishoprics of the Ecclesiastical Province of Mainz. The Bishopric of Constance 6. The Premonstratensian Monastery of Obermarchtal]
Rev. by Schöntag, Wilfried
Aims and Scope
In the sixth volume of the Germania Sacra on the Bishopric of Constance, Wilfried Schöntag tells the story of the Premonstratensian monastery of Obermarchtal from its foundation in 1171 to its closure in 1803 and at the same time gives an introductory account of the history of the Swabian circary. In addition to the history of the monastery’s ownership and administration, the work also examines the lives of the provosts, abbots and conventuals, the monastery’s educational history and the history of the building and its artworks. A particular focus is placed on the 17th century, as this period may be regarded as the “great” century of the Marchtal abbots and conventuals.
