Xenophon of Robeika was a Russian Orthodox monk, later declared a saint. A student of St. Barlaam of Khutyn (+ 1192, November 6), he later became head of the Khutyn Monastery, after the Igumen Isidore (+1243). Resigning as Igumen, St. Xenophon founded the Trinity Monastery, on the banks of the Robeika River, close to Novgorod. Here he reposed blessedly on June 28, 1262.
