The Praemonstratensians are canons regular, not monks. The order was founded in 1121 by St Norbert, whose remains can be found in a reliquary in a side chapel of the abbey church. The remains were transferred there from Xanten, Germany, after the Protestant Reformation.

According to the latest catalogue of the order, Strahov has 82 members, 64 priests, three lay brothers, two deacons, nine clerics in formation and four novices. The small number participating in the mass reviewed might have been due to the fact that most priests conduct services in neighboring parishes.
