Although she wished to become a nun, she was promised in an arranged marriage to Saint Ansbert of Chaussy. Tradition states that Angadrisma, wishing for a way out, prayed fervently and was stricken with leprosy. She was cured when she was allowed to become a nun and received the veil from Saint Ouen, archbishop of Rouen.
She became abbess of the Benedictine convent of Oroër-des-Vierges, near Beauvais.
Angadrisma is portrayed in art with her face pitted by leprous skin. She is venerated as the patron of the diocese of Beauvais.
