St. Robert of Chaise Dieu, also known as Robert de Turlande (c. 1000 – 17 April 1067) was a French Roman Catholic priest and professed member of the Order of Saint Benedict. He was of noble stock and was also related to Saint Gerald of Aurillac. He is best known for the establishment of the Benedictine convent of La Chaise-Dieu (‘Home of God’) and for his total commitment to the poor. He became a spiritual inspiration for Pope Clement VI – whose own origins in the religious life were based at that convent – and it was he who canonized the Benedictine abbot on 19 September 1531 in Avignon.
