In addition to serving as a recluse for maunts, it also takes in travelers, providing them with a place to rest on their journey. The cloister is under the patronage of the revered Saint Glinda (not to be confused with Glinda Arduenna Upland).
Between the events of A Lion Among Men and Out of Oz, the mauntery is partially destroyed in a skirmish between the Emerald City and Munchkinland. Therefore, the maunts relocated to a nearby farm house to practice their faith.

- Due to the Cloister‘s near proximity to Quadling Country, the establishment takes on its fair share of Quadling novices deemed too plain or unruly for marriage, or too dull for the mild professions.
