Exponent v. Proponent in Cochems

Either word is correct.

Exponent, I think, is better,

Dictionary defintion:

1. a person or thing that expounds, explains, or interprets: an exponent of modern theory in the arts.

2. a person or thing that is a representative, advocate, type, or symbol of something: Lincoln is an exponent of American democracy.

An exponent is more than a proponent. Cochems by his writings was an exponent.
