Foundation Information
 

This community was founded in 1138 by Bishop Otto of Bamberg as a Premonstratensian convent and settled with nuns from this order. In 1144, however, the nuns were transfered to Lochgarten near Weitersheim. Nevertheless, in 1279 references still record a convent at Tückelhausen. In 1307 the convent was united with the nuns from Michelfeld near Kitzingen. At this time the convent experienced a lack of discipline and confussion which caused the Abbot of Oberzell to intervene. The 'unruly' nuns refused to recognize the authority of their spiritual overseer and were brought before the general chapter. The general chapter ordered the dissolution of the convent and the transfer of the nuns to Unterzell . The convent itself was transfered to the Carthusian order.
