No information of his early life has survived, and the first we hear of Sola he is a monk in England. He immigrated to Germany where he became a spiritual student of Saint Boniface. Ordained by Boniface. Hermit near Fulda, Germany, and later at Eichstätt, Germany. At each place he attracted would-be students. At Eichstätt there were so many who stayed that Sola founded the abbey at Solnhofen, Germany, for them; he spent the rest of his life there.
