Chapter Summary

Gómez makes his first documentary appearance as Bishop of Calahorra on October 31, 1045. Calahorra's cathedral, a church dedicated to the Virgin Mary situated on the outskirts of the city where it was bordered by the Cidacos river, was endowed by its Navarrese conqueror, in what might initially be mistaken for the definitive reestablishment of the church of Santa María de Calahorra as the undisputed centre of the riojan see. It can be seen that Gómez rejection of the traditional centre of his see, and his establishment in first San Millán de la Cogolla, then Santa María la Real de Nájera, and lastly San Martín de Albelda, all ultimately responded to the changing needs and priorities of the Crown of Navarre. They therefore sharply reflect the degree to which Gómez's episcopate was defined by an exclusive partnership with Navarre's rulers.
