Foundation Information
 

The foundation of this convent is unknown. The convent is attested to in 788 when the abbess Juliana transfered the community into the possession of Fulda. The property in turn was later given to the Counts of Bodenlaube as a fief. In 1219 it was again sold to the community of Bildhausen. According to Link, Count Manto was perhaps the founder of the convent (Link, 572).
