Abstract: The origins of the Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus is shrouded in a haze of myth and legend. The problem has been further compouded by the loss of essential dowments from the ravages of wars and time. The Order's presence was a definite reality after the conquest of Jerusalem on the 14h July 1099 by the Crusaders under the leadership of Godfrey of Bouillon. The re-organization initiated in the hospitaller services available in the Holy City resulted in the setting up of two hospitaller Orders, both adopting the Rule of Saint Augustine.
