- Wandering missionary who made pilgrimages to tombs of saints and martyrs throughout Gaul and northern Italy, preaching to those he met on the way.
There are two stories of his death:
- he was martyred by pagans while preaching to them
- a Burgundian nobleman gave Maimbod a gift of a fine pair of gloves as a reminder to pray for him; while Mainbod was praying at the church of Domnipetra, he was attacked by thieves who thought he had money because of the gloves.
When miracles were reported at Mainbod's tomb, Count Aszo of Monteliard asked the blind bishop Berengarius for a gift of the saint's relics.
During the move, Berengarius miraculously recovered his sight, and he instituted the feast in honor of Mainbod.
- martyred c.880 in Kaltenbrunn, Alsace, Gaul (modern France);
buried at the church of Domnipetra, Kaltenbrunn, Alsace, Gaul;
miracles reported at his tomb, and during the translation of his relics;
