Religious Life 
In 1236, Ludolph was appointed to the see of the newly formed Prince-Bishopric of Ratzeburg. Ludolph came into conflict with Duke Albert I of Saxony and was duly imprisoned, where he was badly beaten, and later sent into exile. In exile Ludolph was taken in by Duke John of Mecklenburg but died soon after in 1250.
On legend states that a soldier who was wounded when an arrowhead was embedded in his head. The soldier, who was in great pains, invoked the intercession of St. Ludolph, and the soldier was soon able to remove the arrow and was healed.
