Lanfranc of Pavia, archbishop of Canterbury from 1070 to 1089, was a scholar-monk who brought to his position a rich experience in Italy and Normandy. He was William the Conqueror's trusted collaborator in ordering the English church and kingdom. In this first full scholarly study of Lanfranc for thirty years, H. E. J. Cowdrey reconsiders Lanfranc's career, focusing on his vision, capability, and achievements. He brings him out from the shadow of his successor, St Anselm, and reveals him as among the very greatest of the archbishops of Canterbury.
