The design of medieval monasteries of the mendicant convents in Northern German towns is remarcably different from other monastic orders. It consists of two adjacent cloisters, one belonging to the monastic clausura, the other serving as a „public“ cloister for civic convents and burials. Few monasteries of this type survived, but hitherto rather unknown, many others are more or less deducible from excavations and written sources. These architectures provide unexpected new insights into the interrelation between citizens and mendicant orders in the 13th to 15th centuries.
