In the imperial city of Strasbourg sat down in the twenties of the 16th Century Protestantism. Soon began the City Council to seek to shut down the monasteries, whose existence was not compatible with the new doctrine. Nevertheless, a number of monasteries survived partly to the 17th Century. What the surviving monasteries differed from the resolution? What strategies are implemented, the monks and nuns to defend against the closures? What interest the city council at its survival? Anna goes to these questions Sauerbrey and systematically compares the different conditions and possibilities of men's and women's communities.
