Concerning Archbishop Gonzalo Perez, the modern historian of the church of Toledo is content to record just his election in 1182 and his death in 1191. Of greater significance for Toledo, however, were two developments during his pontificate which until recently historians have either denied or neglected. By the end of 1183 the archbishop was claiming the royal chancery as his own, and by the end of his life the church of Toledo had established the first of the various cartularies in which the record of its most precious muniments would be preserved: two new departures stemming from a single cause. The second addressed a symptom of the church of Toledo's plight on the first centenary of the city's reconquest which the first was capable of remedying.

Keywords:   Gonzalo Perez, church historian, pontification, church of Toledo, royal chancery, cartularies
