Abstract: My present objective is to discuss (and, at times, question) the way medieval Maltese history has been traditionally reconstructed around the concept of conquest. This. device has enabled a view of the past through a peculiar 'looking-glass', magnifying the initial (and inevitably violent) contact to epic proportions; by contrast, the long centuries of community-building which follow, lack the same dramatic vibrancy.
