|Abstract:||I was actually introduced to the story of Xewkija and its church while reading a master’s degree in development studies in The Hague, the Netherlands, in 1985-86. One of our professors, a Dutchman by the name of Gerard Kester, had been a regular visitor to Malta and he thought fit to refer to the Xewkija Rotunda in the introduction to one of his courses. I was taken completely by surprise: here I was, the only Maltese student at the Institute, and suddenly the majestic product of the toil, sweat and savings of so many Gozitan workers is referred to as one clear example of collective participation.|
