Also known as Cistercians of Common Observance, Cisterciens de l'Ordre de Cîteaux, or Sacer Ordo Cisterciensis (SOCist). Reform movements led to the creation of the R-XR1663 - Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance (Trappists), also referred to as Observance Trappists, formed 1664, La Trappe (France), and separated from the Cistercians of Common Observance. Under the title of R-XR1800 - Cistercian Nuns, or Cistercian Nuns of the Common Observance, are included several groups of cloistered nuns who, in their history and tradition, are associated with the Order.
