Summary/Abstract: The study deals with the fates of monastery of Nepomuk (Pomuk) in exile in the time of the Hussitewars. The core is comprised of an analysis of newly found sources, particularly the accountsof the court of the Ebrach Abbey in Nuremburg. Here, the exiles had part of their financialreserves deposited, acquired from the sale and pledge of valuables and books of their cloister.On blank folios of the accounts, there are drafts of letters by the administrator of the court,Hermann of Kottenheim, for the Nepomuk exiles. The mentioned sources deliver a detailedtestimony on the as yet unknown place of their residence, the composition, functioning, andfinancing of the Nepomuk exile monastery. It was also possible to correct the idea that theNepomuk monks set out for their maternal abbey of Ebrach immediately after the Hussite warsbroke out. The core of the monastery resided at the economic court in Weinzierl bei Krems andwas finally disbanded only after 1430 when the exiles ran out of finances.
