Argumentation
  • based on research
Specification The monastery was founded in 1225, no entries show a date after 1473.
Period covered by the memorial text
Date 1235-1473
Argumentation
  • date(s) are mentioned in the text
Specification Many, but not all, entries are dated. As 1472 and 1473 are mentioned regularly, however, it seems unlikely that undated entries were added after this date. For the earlier entries, this cannot as easily be concluded.
