Regarding the authentic history of Oppas, modern scholars have vindicated D. Rodrigo. They have, however, not commented on his presentation of the cardinal event of the reign of Wamba, the reign which for him was the high point of the entire 7th century. Wamba's eight-year reign occupies almost twice as much space in De rebus Hispanie as those of all his predecessors since Reccared put together; and rightly so in view of what Toledo owed Wamba. In the words of the Mozarabic, Wamba had completely renovated the city ‘mire et eleganti labore’.

Keywords:   reign of Wamba, Toledo, D. Rodrigo, anointing, episcopal programme
