A small group of wealthy pious women under the direction of Hildeswidis von Markboldestorp considered this place on the outskirts of Lüneburg to be suitable to settle here. With the permission of the bishop and Heinrich the Lion, they founded the Lüne monastery in 1172. No commitment to any religious order is noted in the charter. The women of the monastery were guided by the rules of the Benedictine monastery for men, which had long been in the city (on the Kalkberg). Only after a hundred years (1272) was the women's monastery described as a Benedictine monastery, the official full acceptance of the Benedictine rules has only been documented since the middle of the 14th century....lustauflueneburg.de/kloster-lüne/#gsc.tab=0
