Stiftsbibliothek Kremsmünster - HMML Repository

Stiftsbibliothek Kremsmünster

This Benedictine abbey was founded in 777 by Duke Tassilo III of Bavaria. Except for the years 1939-1945, when the entire monastic community was ejected during the Nazi occupation and the entire manuscript collection transferred elsewhere, the Abbey has enjoyed an unbroken and flourishing existence. After World War II, it was able to recover almost all of its codices. HMML began its preservation work here in 1965 by filming 434 manuscripts dating from the 8th to the 17th c.
