Franziskanerkloster - HMML Repository

Franziskanerkloster

The Franciscan convent at Güssing (Austria) is a late foundation, opening in 1641-1648. There had been earlier Benedictine and Augustinian communities there but they had not survived. The collection of liturgical works (sermons, breviaries and missals), polemical tracts, a Weltchronik, and Biblical study aids include a few items from Hungary and Transylvania. Most of these works (dated chiefly to the 15th-16th c.) come from the Batthyany family library.
