Abstract paper -a: In this paper, I will look at the papal privileges given to the Cistercian order and individual Cistercian houses during the pontificate of Eugenius III. I will consider how these privileges fit into the development of Cistercian privileges generally in the 12th century. I will also look at the impact that these privileges had on the local and national church. Finally, I will look at the uniformity of these privileges across Cistercian houses in Europe.
