Rudolph, St

Rudolph, St., a monk OF FULDA in the 9th century, was a pupil of Rhabanus Maurus (q.v.), director of the convent school, and spiritual counsellor and favorite preacher to Louis II. He wrote a number of works, among which a continuation of the Annals of Fulda (839-863) holds the first place. By direction of his abbot, Maurus, he composed a life of Lioba, abbess of Bischofsheim, which is given in Surius and Mabillon (Acta Ord. S. Ben. Saec. 3, 2). A short history of the Saxons, which has been incorporated into Meginhard's narrative of the translation of St. Alexander (comp. the art. "Felicitas u. ihre 7 Sohne" in Pertz, 2, 673-681), is also from his pen; and to this list must be added a tract known by the erroneous title Vita B. Rabani Archiep. Moguntiocensis, given by the Bollandists, vol. 1, Feb. p. 500; Mabillon, Acta Ord. S. Ben. vol. 4, pt. 2, p. 1, etc. Canisius (Lect. Antiq. 2, 168, ed. Basnage) contains a letter of Ermenrich, subsequently abbot at Ellwangen, with which he transmits to Rudolph, his former instructor, a life of the priest St. Sola for improvement. See Pertz, 1, 338, 339, in the preface to the Annals of Fulda.
