    Buchau Abbey

    The Imperial Abbey of Buchau (German: Reichsstift Buchau) was initially a monastery of canonesses regular, and later a collegiate foundation, in Buchau (now Bad Buchau) in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.

    According to tradition, the monastery was founded around 770 on an island in the Federsee by the Frankish Count Warin and his wife Adelindis (still commemorated in the local Adelindisfest). The abbey was put on a secure financial footing by Louis the Pious, who in 819 granted the nuns property in the Saulgau and in Mengen. In 857, Louis the German declared it a private religious house of the Carolingian Imperial family and appointed as abbess his daughter Irmingard (died 16 July 866).

    The abbey was initially a house of canonesses regular, but at a later date it was converted into a collegiate foundation of secular canonesses who belonged to various noble families of Swabia. In 1347, Buchau Abbey gained Imperial immediacy and the abbess was raised to the rank of Princess-Abbess.

    In the 13th century as well, the town of Buchau, which had grown in the immediate vicinity of the monastery, gained the status of a Free Imperial City after a long period of strife between the townspeople and the abbey. From then on and until 1803, Buchau Abbey and the Imperial City of Buchau, both self-governing entities fully independent of each other, were forced to cohabit. Unlike most of the other Free Imperial Cities, Buchau was to remain Catholic in the course of the Reformation.

    In 1415, the abbey became a secular foundation and from then on the congregation was to be composed of an abbess, twelve choir women (Chofrauen) and two chaplains. The abbess, as an Imperial Estate, had seat and voice in the Reichstag. Buchay Abbey had a small territorial base and in 1625 the lordship of Strassberg also became part of the Abbey.
