Lambert of Vence, also known as Lambert of Bauduen, was Bishop of Vence. Born Pelloquin Lambert, at Bauduen, France, in 1084. He lost his mother at birth and was raised at the age of twelve years by the Benedictine monks of Lérins.[1] He was appointed Bishop of Vence in 1114, and remained in the see until his death in 1154.
