Odolric of Saint-Martial

a French ecclesiastic, flourished in the first half of the 11th century. He commenced his studies in the monastery of Saint-Martial at Limoges, and finished them at Fleuri-sur-Loire. On his return to Saint-Martial he was elected by the monks, in 1025, successor of the abbe Hugues. Odolric died about 1040. To him is attributed the compilation of the acts of the council assembled in the city of Limoges in 1031 (Labbe, Concilia, 9:870). The principal subject submitted to this council was to know if Saint-Martial had been one of the disciples of Jesus, sent by himself into Gaul. The question was decided in the affirmative; but historical criticism has not adopted this decision. See Gallia Christimaa, tom. ii, col. 558; Histoire littr. de la France, 7:346.
