Saint Agilulfus (or Agigulf), Abbot of Stavelot, Bishop of Cologne and martyr, died in the year 750. Little is known about this saint, and an early account written by a monk of Malmedy is deemed untrustworthy.

Agilulfus came from a good family and was educated under Abbot Angelinus at Stavelot. A short time after succeeding as Abbot of Stavelot, Agilulfus became Bishop of Cologne. He is said to have tried to persuade King Pepin to leave his throne to someone other than Charles Martel, due to Charles' illegitimacy. Agilulfus' violent end soon after could be a result of Martel seeking revenge.

A letter of Pope Zachary in 747 commended Agilulfus for signing the "Charta verae et orthodoxae professionis."

His remains were taken to the Church of Our Lady of the Steps St. Maria ad Gradus at Cologne. His feast day is July 9.
