The Augustinians Are Invited to Bohemia

The arrival in 1262 of the Augustinians in Bohemia (or the “crown lands of St. Wenceslaus”) marked one of the earliest attempts at implanting the Order of St. Augustine among the western Slavs. With zealous inititiative friars at the newly founded Seemanhausen friary in Bavaria (sharing a common border with a burgeoning dynamic Czech principality) resolved to expand eastwards. An ancient tradition redacted during the baroque period attributes the founding of the monastery to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
