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. The reason for the enormous discrepancy between the Navarrese monarchy’s intense promotion of Nájera and its neglect of Calahorra lies in the similarly great contrast between the strategic, political, and economic relevance of these two secular diocesan centres during Gómez’s episcopate.

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. 93 This question has two possible answers, both of which are closely related to Gómez’s function with respect to the frontier politics of the Kingdom of Navarre under Sancho IV. 94 As the region’s dominant monastic foundation, San Millán de la Cogolla represented the main instrument in the creation of political, jurisdictional, and spiritual bonds between the population of the Cárdenas valley in which it was situated and both of the two dominant secular powers that hoped to establish their control in that area.

82–85. 17 Indeed, Santa María’s endowment, which was recorded at a ceremony celebrated on December 12, 1052 and attended by García III of Navarre with his queen, Estefanía, and their children, as well as Fernando I of Leon, Ramiro I of Aragon, and Ramón Berenguer I, Count of Barcelona, was nothing short of sensational. 20 The geography of Santa María la Real’s original endowment is extremely significant, as it reflects very neatly the two highly prioritized royal Navarrese purposes that the najeran foundation, and by association the diocese to which it was entrusted, were intended to serve.
