It was founded in 1132–33 by Saint Otto of Bamberg and was settled by monks from Ebrach Abbey, under the first abbot Rapotho It was one of the wealthiest monasteries of Germany, with possessions around Franconia as far as Regensburg and in Württemberg These rich endowments were mostly made by the dukes of Abenberg and their heirs, the Hohenzollern Burgraves of Nuremberg It was the hereditary burial-place of the Hohenzollern family and ten burgraves of Nuremberg, five margraves and three electors of Brandenburg, besides many other persons of note, were buried here
Reformation and dissolution
Heilsbronn was a flourishing monastery until the time of the Reformation In 1530 Abbot John Schopper 1529–1540 founded a monastic school here, which later became a Protestant school for princes, and the doctrines of Luther gradually found favour in the monastery His successor, Sebastian Wagner, openly supported Protestantism He married and resigned in 1543 In 1549 Roman Catholicism was restored at Heilsbronn, but only ostensibly, and the abbey seems to have ceased to be a Catholic house in 1555, although it existed for some years longer The last abbot who made any pretense to Catholic belief was Melchior Wunderer 1562–1578 The five succeeding abbots were Protestants, and in 1631 Heilsbronn ceased to be an abbey Its valuable library was transferred to Erlangen
The buildings of the monastery have mostly disappeared, with the exception of the fine church, known as Münster Heilsbronn, a Romanesque basilica, restored between 1851 and 1866, and possessing paintings by Albrecht Dürer
