Tomasz Tomka was thirteenth century Bishop of Płock, Poland.[1] He was Bishop from 1271 till 1294.[2][3]

He may have been of Prussian descent,[4] although medieval Chronicler, Jan Długosz claims Polish origines.[5] He had at least a school level education, and may have obtained a university degree,[6][7] as Jan Długosz considered him to be a scholar.[8]

He was Chancellor for Siemowit I of Masovia from before 21 April 1256[9] and in a document dated 19 November 1257 was Canon to Andrzej Ciołka the Bishop of Płock.[10] and was made bishop himself in 1271.

In 1282 he visited Pomerania, and he lived until sometime after 6 May 1294.
