Although none of his sermons is extant, Pedro de Ollogoyen is traditionally considered the forwarder of the slaughter to the Jews of Navarra in 1328. (Menéndez Pelayo).
Goñi questions the violence and aggresiveness of his sermons. About the attacks in 1321, he suggests that “no one disturbed the Jews”, although he himself explains that a converso (probably forced to convert to Christianity) who lived as a Jew, was burnt at stake in 1321.
According to Goñi, tempers very running high in 1328 due to political issues (struggle for the throne of Navarra in 1328-9) and “it is evident that the Navarrese Church did not take part in that affair, because only very few priests, on their own risk, were dragged by the antisemitic movement”.
