Isidro Goma y Tomas (19 August 1869 - 22 August 1940) was the Bishop of Tarazona in the province of Zaragosa. He was also later made Cardinal and Archbishop of Toledo and was a primate.  Gomá was a fundamentalist, integrista, in the technical sense in believing in the necessity of a 'Confessional State' that imposes upon all its subjetcs the profession and practice of the Roman Catholic religion and prohibits all others. 
At the end of the Spanish Civil War he wrote; "The Church has applied the full weight of her prestige, which has been placed at the service of truth and justice, to bring about the triumph of the National Cause."
He was ordained on 8 June 1895 in Tarragona. He did pastoral work in the archdiocese of Tarragona until 1897 after which he worked as a faculty member of the Pontifical Seminary of Tarragona from 1897 until 1899. He served as its rector until 1906. He was also a faculty member of the Pontifical University of Tarragona from 1897 until 1899. He worked in the diocesan curia until 1927.
He was appointed as bishop of Tarazona on 20 June 1927 by Pope Pius XI. He was appointed as apostolic administrator of Tudela from December 1927 until June 1933. He was promoted to the metropolitan and primatial see of Toledo on 12 April 1933.
