Example text

38 This is most strikingly illustrated by the range of titles used in contemporary documents to describe the figure that, with the prejudice of hindsight and in the interests of clarity, I simply refer to as the Bishop of Calahorra. The sources’ various references to Gómez as Bishop of (or in) Calahorra, Nájera, San Millán, or Albelda, thus in fact reflect the existence of four very different centres with which his episcopal authority was associated during various phases of his episcopate. 23–4.

It should also be noted, however, that the ‘Libro de las Homilías’, a document drawn up in Calahorra’s scriptorium during the 1120’s, refers to the destruction of Calahorra’s Visigothic church by Almanzor: Pablo Díaz Bodegas, ‘La diócesis de Calahorra en la Edad Media y su consolidación a la sombra del poder’, in: J. I. 468. II, 6 & 7. 231. 47 The Navarrese Crown’s continued patronage of its najeran foundation likewise stands in stark contrast to a total absence of evidence of any further royal donations made to Santa María de Calahorra during Gómez’s episcopate.

41–2, 48, & 51. , 42. , 46. 92 After departing from Santa María la Real de Nájera in the late 1050’s, Gómez actively assumed the abbacy of San Martín de Albelda. It is clear from the above that he did so in his capacity as Bishop of Calahorra, and that after doing so, it was widely accepted that the authority that he exercised from his base in Albelda was of an emphatically episcopal nature. It is also clear that he intended the association of his episcopal authority with the monastery of San Martín de Albelda to outlast his own episcopate.
