This paper presents information on the history of the Franciscan monastery in Żary in the Middle Ages. It mainly deals with the founding of the monastery and the founder himself. These issues are open to discussion since few document sources from the earliest history of the monastery have survived. The paper also mentions the reforms of the XV c. which involved the Silesian and Lusatian monasteries. Besides, it includes information on the monks' means to support themselves.
