Photographer's Note

Mother Monika in her sitting room. On the table her dearest documents: the protocol (the large book) and the cloisters founding deed of 1288 (above the book). Here she reads out the report of Alexander Suvorovs arrival, written down by one of her predecessors.

In late 1799 Suvorov and his army on its flight through the alps passed through Moutathal. The small village and the cloister were overstrained by 25'000 exhausted and wounded men. This very room was occupied by the officers, the church was used as horse stable, food supplies prepared for the winter were plundered and after the army left over the next mountain pass, famine and hardship stayed.

More about my visit in the cloister in yesterdays post.
