Abbot and bishop. Born near Beauvais, France, he entered the military while still young, but soon gave up this career to become a monk at Corbie Benedictine Monastery where he served as tutor to the sons of Charles Martel. In 851, Odo was elected abbot, and in 861 became bishop of Beauvais. His reforms were much to the benefit of the Church in northern France, and he assisted in bringing about the reconciliation between Pope Nicholas I and the powerful Archbishop Hincmar of Reims after they had a dispute over Hincrnar's deposition of Bishop Rothadius of Soissons in 862.
