Archbishop Benjamin (Krasnopevkov) (1739–1811) was a Russian Orthodox hierarch and spiritual writer of the 18th century. He studied at St. Alexander Nevsky Seminary in St. Petersburg, where he was tonsured a monk. He soon became a priest and then a bishop, serving the Russian Church in Novgorod, Arkhangelsk, and finally Nizhny Novgorod, where he became its ruling archbishop. Archbishop Benjamin was focused on improving the spiritual life of the diocese through religious education, the beautification of churches, and the restoration of monasteries. He also sponsored charitable works for the poor. He wrote many spiritual works to help explain proper Christian living for the average person, including theNew Tablet, which explains many aspects of church services.
