ANSO: A monk and abbot (776-800) of Lobbes (35 m.s. of Brussels), but not, like his predecessors, also a bishop. He was considered a worthy, zealous man, but no scholar; nevertheless, while a monk, he compiled from the sources biographies of the first two of the abbot bishops of Lobbes,--the Vita S. Ursmari (in ASB, April, ii. 560-562, and ASM, iii. 1, 248-250) and the Vita S. Ermini or Erminonis (ASB, April, iii. 375-377; ASM, iii. 1, 564-568).
