Oda of Brabant (also called Oda of Anderlues; 1134–1158) was a Belgian prioress of the 12th century, commonly revered as a saint.

Life

Oda was born to a noble family from the Brabant region of Belgium. In order to avoid an arranged marriage to a young nobleman, she disfigured her face. Her family then allowed her to follow the religious vocation she desired. She became a Premonstratensian nun at Rivroelles, eventually becoming prioress there.

Veneration

Although Oda's cultus has never been formally confirmed, popular devotion continues. Her feast day is 20 April.
