Walter von Lomersheim
Around 1138 Walter von Lomersheim donated in Eckenweiher (like Lomersheim today a part of Mühlacker in the Enzkreis ) the forerunner of Maulbronn Monastery, for which he made his father's inheritance available on site and which he then entered as a lay brother . Because the property was not suitable for a larger monastery complex, the Speyer bishop Günther von Henneberg ordered that Hirsau monastery should provide the young monastic community with the “Mulenbrunnen” in Stromberg , which had enough water and slopes suitable for quarries. The Maulbronn Monastery was built here with the support of the noble free Werner von Roßwag and Bertha von Grüningen . Walter von Lomersheim is shown on a wall painting in the monastery together with the bishop as the founder with a model of the monastery church.
Two siblings of Walters are also known: Konrad and Ita von Lomersheim.
