The Augustinermuseum in Freiburg im Breisgau contains several works from this community, including two Liber precum(s), Inv. Nr. 11732 (15th c.) and Inv. Nr. 11736 (1517), and two psalters, one sine numero and the other, Inv. Nr. 11735. The museum contains three other manuscripts, coming from the community of S. Maria Magdalena, which once belonged to this house, Inv. Nr. 2536, 11730, and 11731. The city archive in Freiburg in Breisgau also conatins numerous manuscripts from this house, #B1 (H) Nr. 123, Antiphonal (15th c.); #B1 (H) Nr. 127; #B1 (H) 154 and 155 Obsequiale; #B1 (H) Nr. 156; #B1 (H) Nr. 157, Obsequiale (c. 1400); and a Processional, #B1 (H) Nr. 158. The University library in Freiburg also posseses four manuscripts, three Obsequiale(s), likely from this community, # 153, 296, and 309 respectively, and an Augustinian rule from this house, #478. The Landesbibliothek in Karlsruhe also contains two manuscripts from the community, a Soliloquium of Egb. Sconaug. (c. 1480), written by Maria Neübergerin, #St. Peter pap. 17; and a psalter (14-15th c.), #St. Peter perg. 104. The Huntington library in San Marino, CA preserves a Preces piae (c. 1380), owned by Margareta Burgerin, #HM 1065, De Ricci 1, 86.
