Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with the research of the Trnava Clarissian monastery. This is one of the most important topics in the history of Medieval Trnava because it is an institution that has been in written sources since the end of the thirties of the 13th century, that is, from the initial period of formation of the protourban privileged community supported by the granting of a charter of privileges in 1238. The monastery belongs to the oldest documented historical buildings in Trnava. The importance of the Trnava convent goes beyond the local history itself because it is the oldest known monastery of this monastic order in the whole Kingdom of Hungary and the question of its establishment in the protourban environment, property and functional background is therefore also important for the research of the history of the order in Hungary.
