Saint Robert was born in Yorkshire (northern England) and studied in Paris. After graduating, he became a secular priest, Benedictine-monk and later joined in the Cistercian Order. He became abbot of Newminster, the monastery founded by him, and successfully set up further monasteries in England. It is said that he especially cared for the poor. Saint Robert died after a fulfilling life in 1159. It seems like miracles occurred at his grave.
