The only link I have found in twenty years of searching is that there w as a

Notes for Iñigo Iñiguez ARISTA

Leader of the revolt against the Franks, elected KingInigo Arista may be g
randson rather than son of Ximeno of Gascony - cf. Collins, "Royal Ancesto

The Kingdom of Navarre, originally called Pamplona, arose circa 824 when I
ñigo Arista led a revolt against the Franks. The last king of Navarre, Hen ry
III (reigned 1572-1610), succeeded to the throne of France as Hen ry IV in
1589. It remained a separate kingdom under the French crown unt il 1791.

Navarre (nvär´) (KEY) , Span. Navarra (nävä´rä)

The population of northern and western Navarre is largely of Basque stoc k,
and the early history of the region is that of the Basques. The pa ss of
Roncesvalles, which leads from France to Navarre, made the region st
rategically important early in its history. The Basques defended themselv es
successfully against the Moorish invaders as well as against the Frank s; the
domination of Charlemagne, who conquered Navarre in 778, was short- lived. In
824 the Basque chieftain Iñigo Aritza was chosen king of Pamplon a, which was
expanded under his successors and became known as the kingd om of Navarre. It
reached its zenith under Sancho III (reigned 1000–1035 ), who married the
heiress of Castile and ruled over nearly all of Christi an Spain.

On Sancho’s death the Spanish kingdoms were again divided (into Navarre, A
ragón, and Castile). The kingdom of Navarre then comprised the present pro
vince of Navarre, the Basque Provinces (which were later lost to Castile ),
and, north of the Pyrenees, the district called Lower Navarre, now a pa rt of
France. In 1305, Navarre passed to King Philip IV of France. Navar re stayed
with the French crown until the death (1328) of Charles IV, wh en it passed to
Charles’s niece, whose son, Charles II (Charles the Bad ), played an important
part in the Hundred Years War and in the French civ il unrest of the time. In
1479, Navarre passed, through marriage, to the c ounts of Foix and then to the
house of Albret. Ferdinand V (Ferdinand t he Catholic), after defeating Jean
d’Albret, annexed most of Navarre in 15 15. The area north of the Pyrenees
(Lower Navarre) remained an independe nt kingdom until it was incorporated
(1589) into the French crown when Hen ry III of Navarre became King Henry IV
of France. It was united with Béa rn into a French province.

Until the French Revolution the kings of France carried the additional tit le
king of Navarre. Since the rest of Navarre was in Spanish hands, the ki ngs of
Spain also carried (until 1833) the title king of Navarre. During t hat period
Navarre enjoyed a special status within the Spanish monarch y; it had its own
cortes, taxation system, and separate customs laws. In 1 833, Navarre became
the chief stronghold of the Carlists but recognized Is abella II as queen in
1839. As a reward for their loyalty in the Spanish C ivil War, Franco allowed
the Navarrese to maintain their ancient fueros, w hich were charters handed
down by the crown outlining a system of self-gov ernment.

Notes for Jimino Iñiguez ARISTA

Diocese of Pamplona

This Diocese comprises almost all of Navarre and part of Guipuzcoa. This d
iocese is said to date from Apostolic times. It is matter of traditi on in the
churches of Pamplona, Toledo, and Toulouse (France), that St. Sa turninus,
disciple of St. Peter, sent from Toulouse the priest Honest us to preach to
the inhabitants of Navarre, and later came in person. Find ing that Honestus
had already made many converts, Saturninus left him in P amplona. Honestus was
the teacher of St. Firminus (son of the senator Firm us), first Bishop of
Pamplona. Firminus went later into France, where he w as martyred at Amiens.
There is no note of any other Bishop of Pamplona un til 589, when Liliolus
signed as such in the Third Council of Toledo. Duri ng the seventh century
other bishops are known as signatories of various c ouncils of Toledo. It was
not known with certainty whether the Arabs succe eded in establishing
themselves in Pamplona (Ferreras affirms and Moret de nies it); at all events,
there is no record of a Bishop of Pamplona from t he Saracen invasion until
the reign of Opilanus (829). The old cathedral h ad meanwhile fallen into
ruins, and the bishops now took refuge in the mon astery of San Salvador of
Leyre (founded in the eighth century). Inigo Ari sta recovered Pamplona in 848
or 849, and restored the monastery, converti ng it into a stronghold. This was
for a long time the episcopal court a nd see, and hither Arista had
transferred the bodies of the holy virgins N unilona and Alodia, martyred at
Huesca in the time of Abd-er-Rahman II.

It was the wish of Sancho the Elder to introduce into Leyre the Cluniac re
form, but the bishops and abbots (e. g. in the Council of Pamplona of 102 3)
resisted until 1090, during the reign of Sancho Ramirez. In the said co uncil
they resolved to restore the See of Pamplona, and decreed that all t he
bishops of Pamplona should be thereafter of the monastery of Leyre li ke
Sancho I, who then occupied the see. In 1025 the monks of Leyre were af
filiated with the canons of Pamplona, and Juan II took the title of Bish op of
Pamplona and Leyre, and signed in a number of decrees "Joannes, eccl esiæ
Navarrensium rector". Until the reign of Sancho Ramirez (1076-94) Ley re
remained the seat of the bishops of Pamplona. The monastery held und er its
jurisdiction fifty-eight towns and seventy-two religious houses, a nd was
besides the mausoleum of the Kings of Navarre. Theobald I brought C istercian
monks to Leyre, but at the end of the same century the mon ks of Cluny
returned and occupied it for some time. The monastery is n ow in ruins, and
its church serves as that of a rural parish. The see havi ng been
reestablished in Pamplona, King Sancho Ramirez (1076-94) procur ed the
appointment as Bishop of Pedro de Roda, monk of St. Pons de Tomière s, who
built the new cathedral and established a chapter of canons under t he Rule of
St. Augustine. The bishops of Pamplona, as such, presided ov er the
ecclesiastical order and the three estates that made up the Cort es of
Navarre. The cathedral of Santa Maria held the seigniory of the cit y, and its
canons enjoyed the privileges of the royal family. Bishop Sanc ho de Larrosa
consecrated the cathedral, completed in 1124. His predecesso r, Guillermo
Gastón, had accompanied King Alfonso to the conquest of Sarag ossa, and there
founded the Church of "St. Michael of the Navarrese".

In the Cathedral of Pamplona is venerated the ancient statue of "St. Mar y,
the White Virgin (Santa María la Blanca, Santa Maria de la Sede or d el
Sagrario), which was preserved in Leyre from very ancient times until t he
eleventh century. There is also a reliquary containing a thorn from O ur
Saviour's crown, given by St. Louis to Theobald II; likewise the hea ds of the
virgins Nunilona and Alodia, whose bodies were in Leyre. Bish op Pedro de
Artajona — known as Pedro of Paris, because it was there he h ad received his
education — obtained from Celestine III (1191) the confirm ation of all the
privileges of the Church of Pamplona, and procured besid es from the Bishop of
Amiens a few relics of St. Firmin whose feast was fr om this time (1186)
celebrated with the same solemnity as the feasts of t he Apostles. In 1197
Sancho the Strong ceded his palace to Bishop Garci a. The sovereigns, Donna
Juana and Philip of Evreux, recovered it, leavi ng it in turn to Bishop
Arnaldo de Barbazán; their son, Carlos the Bad, re turned it to Bishop Miguel
Sanchez de Asiain, and later to Bishop Bernar do Folcant. Since the union of
Navarre and Castille, it had been occupi ed by the viceroys, and is to-day the
headquarters of the Captaincy-Genera l. The bishops resided later in the "Casa
del Condestable" (House of the C onstable, i. e., of the Duke of Alba) until
Bishop Melchor Angel Gutierr ez Vallejo commenced the new palace, completed by
Francisco III Ignacio Añ oa y Busto. In 1317 Jimeno III, Garcia being bishop,
Pamplona, former ly a suffragan of Tarragona, became a suffragan of Saragossa.
Carlos III t he Noble reconstructed the cathedral, and gave it for twelve
years the for tieth part of the royal revenues from Navarre. Bishop Martin de
Zavala, pa rtisan of the antipope Pedro de Luna, aided in the erection. In
1400 Emper or Manuel Palæologus gave to the Church of Pamplona a particle of
the wo od of the True Cross and another of the reputed blue vestment of Our
Lor d; these relics are preserved in the cathedral. Toward the end of the eigh
teenth century Bishop Sancho de Oteyza completed the façade.

The parish church of St. Saturnioro is a very old structure and has but o ne
nave; not far from this is pointed out the well where the saint baptiz ed his
first converts. The parish church of St. Lorenzo was renovated in t he
eighteenth century, and enlarged by the erection of the Chapel of St. F
irminus on the spot where tradition says he was born. The basilica of S t.
Ignatius of Loyola was erected in the place where that saint was wound ed when
fighting against the French. In 1601 Viceroy Juan de Cardona h ad an arch
erected with an inscription, and later Count de Santisteban urg ed the Jesuits
to raise the basilica, which was opened on 10 October, 169 4. Former Dominican
and Carmelite convents have been converted into barrac ks and hospitals, and
the convent of St. Francis into schools. The sanctua ries of Ignatius Loyola
and Francis Xavier belong to this diocese. Th at of Loyola contains the old
house of St. Ignatius enshrined in a monume nt constructed by Fontana under
the auspices of Queen Mariana of Austri a, mother of Carlos II (1689-1738).
The sanctuary of St. Francis Xavier, h ome of the Apostle of the Indies, has
been restored by the generosity of t he Dukes of Villahermosa (1896-1901). The
collegiate church of our La dy of Roncesvalles was founded at the beginning of
the ninth centu ry as a hospice for travellers on their way to Compostela or
from Spa in to Rome and Jerusalem. There are two seminaries in Pamplona, a
concili ar and an episcopal. There was also a university, first incorporated
wi th that of Saragossa and in 1745 with that of Alcalá. It was founded in 16
08 by resolution of the Cortes of Navarre in the Dominican College of t he
Rosary, approved by Philip III in 1619, and established by Grego ry XV in
1621. Urban VIII in 1623 and Philip IV in 1630 confirmed it. In t his
university the well-known moralist, Francisco Larraga, was a professo r. It
boasts of other famous scholars — jurists like Martin de Azpilcuet a,
historians like the Jesuit Moret, missionaries like Calatayud, and bish ops
like the Benedictine Prudencio de Sandoval, historian of Charles V.
