Abstract: Raimundo Rabasa de Perellos y Rocafull became grand master of the Order in 1697. All brethren earning a promotion were expected to donate a costly 'gioia' to the Order within the first five years of their promotion. His choice fell on a magnificent set of tapestries for the conventual church. The St John's tapestry set was commissioned from the workshop of Jacobus de Vos in 1698, barely a year after his election. Perellos's set consists of 29 pieces and was surely the most significant artistic donation made by any grand master.
