Comparing the Life of Pons de Léras with the evidence of charters for a variety of Cistercian abbeys allows us to conclude that the term conversus as applied in the charters to Pons in fact meant “convert to the religious life.” Only in the 1150s did peasant recruits as lay brothers appear at Silvanès and elsewhere. That Pons is referred to as conversus therefore does not require an explanation of humility.
