The Schirmvogtei of the monastery kept the counts of Oettingen. Count Louis XV reformed the village in the years after 1543. The monastic community resisted and remained Catholic. Due to the Reichsdeputationshauptschluss Kirchheim fell to the Principality of Oettingen-Wallerstein. The monastery was abolished. The nuns were allowed to stay together in their convent. With Anna Wörner from Ellwangen died on February 14, 1858 the last nun.
