Robert of Thourotte

Robert of Thourotte[1] (died 1246) was Bishop of Langres 1232–1240, and Bishop of Liège 1240–1246.

He instituted the feast of Corpus Christi, which he ordered to be celebrated first in 1246.[2] This was at the suggestion conveyed through his archdeacon Jacques Pantaléon of Juliana of Liège, whom he had supported in her conflict with the convent authorities.
