  Cistercians - LoveToKnow 1911
From one point of view, it may be regarded as a compromise between the primitive Benedictine system, whereby each abbey was autonomous and isolated, and the complete centralization of Cluny, whereby the abbot of Cluny was the only true superior in the body.
Citeaux, on the one hand, maintained the independent organic life of the houses - each abbey had its own abbot, elected by its own monks; its own community, belonging to itself and not to the order in general; its own property and finances administered by itself, without interference from outside.
The principle was that Citeaux should always be the model to which all the other houses had to conform.

Fascinated by the endeavors of these silent holy men, the Duke of Burgundy increasingly found that he preferred to be at Citeaux rather than at his feudal castle; and had a way of arriving suddenly with his court for a visit, much to the dismay of Abbot Robert.
Alberic had a great devotion to the Mother of God, and the story goes that during his abbotship she appeared to him and presented him with a white robe, intimating that this should be the habit of the monks of Citeaux, and would replace the fl robe of the Benedictines which they had hitherto worn.
The abbot of Citeaux, Dom Francis Trouve, despairing of saving his abbey, urged Pope Pius VI to transfer all his powers to Robert Schlecht, the abbot of Salsmansweiler, of the Cistercian congregation of northern Germany, so that the abbatial succession might remain unbroken.

 Klöster in Frankreich - Citeaux -
Citeaux, die Urzelle des Zisterzienserordens, besteht heute nur noch aus Mauerwerk, malerisch und abgeschieden gelegen in einem Waldstück in Burgund.
Mit ihm kamen vier seiner Brüder, einige Vettern und Freunde, ein ganzer «Clan» begehrte, in den Orden aufgenommen zu werden.
Viele ihrer Regeln erscheinen sehr streng, besonders diese: Sie tragen nichts, was aus Pelz oder Leinen gemacht ist; sie schlafen in ihren Kleidern; niemand bleibt den täglichen Andachten fern, außer den Kranken; der Abt gewährt sich selbst keinerlei Schonung, nur dass er nicht mit den anderen isst, sondern mit Fremden oder den Armen.

 Sanctuary
The Doctor accompanies de Citeaux and Guzman to the Roc to witness the last days of the siege, while surreptitiously using his tracer to follow the escaped prisoner’s path.
The Doctor then reveals that the apothecary Robert is Louis de Citeaux’s spy, as the Castellan had realised when he noticed that the garden was not planted with proper apothecary’s herbs.
He is unaware that the Templars plan to expose him for the murders of both d’Alsace and de Citeaux; they have their own candidate in mind for the Papacy, and they had been editing Robert’s messages to ensure that the siege continued until their rivals eliminated each other.

 History As An Art Of Public Myth
This so changed the situation at Citeaux that more recruits entered, there was enough food to feed everyone, and the very next year a second monastery, a daughter house, was created: La Ferte.
The vast number of popular histories, Internet websites, and even scholarly essays that continue to state that Bernard entered Citeaux prior to the foundation of the first daughter house must be a warning to historians to carefully examine their documents, especially when dealing with such larger than life figures, like saints.
The Exordium Parvum and the Exordium Cistercii are histories of the early period from the foundation of Citeaux.
