Chapter Summary

Bishop Munio was translated from the Diocese of Alava in 1066. His episcopate in Calahorra, which lasted until 1080, was divided into two extremely different phases by the dramatic sequence of events sparked by the assassination on June 4, 1076, of Sancho IV of Navarre by a group of Navarrese potentates that included his own brother, the Infante Ramiro. After Munio's death, the Bishopric of Calahorra was plunged into the depths of a leadership crisis that lasted the entire decade of the 1080's. The paralytic effects of this situation on the see's development are broadcast by the resounding silence of the sources regarding Calahorra's institutions and human infrastructure during this period: beyond a single document linking one of these bishops with the Monastery of Albelda, there is no surviving contemporary evidence of the diocese that Bishops Sancho, Pedro, and Siegfried each claimed to govern.
