The magazine was founded in 1919 as a Benedictine monthly for the care of religious and spiritual life . It ties in with the magazine Sankt-Benedicts -immen, which had been published since 1877 and which was published by the Emmaus Monastery in Prague until 1918 . The St. Benedict's votes could not be continued when almost all German-speaking monks had to leave the Emmaus monastery after the establishment of Czechoslovakia .

The editing of the Benedictine Monthly was provided by Father Paulus Gordan OSB from 1959 to 1968 , who named it Erbe und Mission in 1959 . From 1970 to 2005 Benedikt Schwank OSB was editor of the magazine for many years; since 2006 it has been Albert Schmidt OSB, the current abbot praeses of the Beuron congregation .

Until 2005, the magazine was published every two months, i.e. six times a year. With the change to four numbers a year from 2006, the cover color was also changed (from olive green to red-gray-white). In addition, since the changeover, the German-language edition of the Bulletin of the Alliance for International Monasticism (AIM) has been printed as a special section.
