Vita Pardulfi

The Vita Pardulfi is a work on the life of St Pardulf (d. 737), a holy man from the Limoges area, which was written around the middle of the eighth century.

The Vita Pardulfi is notable for the insight it provides into life in Aquitaine at that time. The work also indicates the high esteem in which Duke Odo of Aquitaine was held, in contrast to the negative picture provided by the Continuations of Fredegar, which were compiled on the instructions of Duke Childebrand, half-brother of Odo's rival Charles Martel.
