Abstract: Galea unveils the personality and the subsequent unwarranted misfortunes that occurred to Father Maximilan Ryllo, who lived in the early 19th century. The author describes him as being a man of eloquent religious-teaching capabilities yet, unfortunately, this virtue was used against him by local newspaper "Il Mediterraneo" which propagated the narrative that Ryllo was promoting protestant propaganda. The concerned British government sought to investigate, however, as a result of strenuous and extraordinary efforts from various clergy members and Ryllo himself, his name was cleared of any suspicion.
