If my argument above is correct, that William must be numbered in the Bec/Canterbury confraternity, William becomes a vital source for Lanfranc. 70 Introduction 21 than the otherwise sparse information Eadmer imparts about Lanfranc. Clearly William’s account is unique, dependent neither on Vita Herluini nor the later Vita Lanfranci. Indeed it shows a softer side of Lanfranc available in no other sources, including the archbishop’s own correspondence. William told also of Lanfranc’s affability and generosity, of his skill at arguing lawsuits and ferreting out, with the help of Dunstan’s spirit, the trickery of his foes.
