The Council of Constance and the conclusion of the Papal
Schism released long pent-up energies of reform throughout
the Church and in the religious Orders in particular. The
Austrian Visitation of 1418/19 which propelled Georg
Muestinger to the highest position in Stift Klosterneuburg
and introduced the Raudnitz Reform of canons regular into
his ancient monastery, illustrates how these energies both
cooperated and competed with each other to achieve a reform
of religious life. The centerpiece of this work is the
introduction of the Raudnitz Statutes into the monastery and
Muestinger’s adaptation of that legislation.

Clemens Timothy Galban is a native of the
USA, a Catholic priest and canon regular of St. Augustine of
Stift Klosterneuburg outside Vienna, Austria. He completed
his doctoral work in 2019 at the Pontifical University of
the Holy Cross in Rome and continues his research into the
history of the canons regular from his monastery.
