Erminold was a Benedictine abbot. He was given to Hirschau Monastery, in Würzburg, Germany, as a small child. In 1110, he became the abbot of Lorsch, resigning and returning to Hirschau when his election was disputed. In 1117, Erminold became abbot of Prüfening[1]. There he was assaulted by a lay brother and slain on 7 January 1121. The means of the the murder was the use of a piece of timber, and the motive was the Abbot's excessive strictness[2].
