Burgos, Councils Of
(Concilium Burgense). Burgos is the capital of Old Castile, in Spain. Two councils were held here.
I. Held in 1080 (according to others in 1076) by cardinal Richard, legate. In this council the Roman office was substituted for the Gothic ritual hitherto in use. See Labbe, Concil. x, 1815.
II. Held in 1136, by Guy, cardinal and legate, who was sent into Spain to facilitate the introduction of the Roman office, and to effect a reconciliation between the kings of Navarre and Castile, who were at war.
