Odo of Fosses
Odo Of Fosses, near Paris, was a French monastic. He was a member of the abbey of Fosses, and died after 1058. Nothing is known of his life, except that, after having passed his youth in the abbey des Fosses, he was constrained to flee from that asylum. Only one of his writings has been preserved to us; it is the Vie de St. Burchard, comte de Melun, published by Jacques de Breul, in his supplement to the Antiquites de Paris; by Duchesne, in his Historiens de France; and by the editors of the Bibliotheque de Cluni, etc. This Vie contains interesting details upon the origin of the abbey des Fosses. It has found a place in his Histoire de Melun, which appeared in Paris in 1628. See Histoire litteraire de la France, 7:493.
