B. ROBERT, FIRST ABBOT AND FOUNDER OF THE GREAT BENEDICTIN MONASTERY OF CHAISE DIEU

IN LATIN CASA DEI, IN THE DIOCESE OF CLERMONT, IN AUVERGNE.

HE was brought up among the clergy of St. Julian’s, at Brioude, and made canon and treasurer of that church. He built a hospital in that town, rebuilt about fifty churches, and, out of a love of solitude and penance, retired with two companions to the spot where, three years after, he founded his abbey in which he governed three hundred monks. It became the head of a congregation of several Benedictin monasteries, and in 1640, was aggregated to that of St. Maur. B. Robert died in 1067, on the 17th of April, and was interred on the 24th, on which he is honored at Chaise-Dieu, and in other places in Auvergne. See Mabillon, Chatelain, &c.
