Saint Robert or Rupert was a tireless missionary and bishop of the German lands and lived from 660-710 A.D. He converted many of the pagan tribes, built up churches and monasteries/convents and was a major force in growing Christianity throughout Bavaria near the Danube river. He reposed on Pascha Sunday in 710 and his body was placed in Salzburg Cathedral.
St. Robert's feast day is celebrated by the Eastern Orthodox Church on the anniversary of his repose, March 27

Thank you UMS! My son's patron saint is Saint Robert and I have waited 16 years to give him an icon of the saint he is named after. And, it is so beautiful! I knew someone would make a St. Robert icon available someday and I always hoped it would be well done - this depiction exceeded my hopes.
