Abstract: The Maltese Church is one of the very few remaining Apostolic Churches. It was founded in A.D. 60 by St. Paul of Tarsus after being shipwrecked on his way to Rome. The rest of the story is well known: the "Princeps Insulae", Publius, entertained them all at his summer residence at a place which is still known as "San Pawl Milqi" (St. Paul Welcomed). St. Paul also healed Refanus, alias Alvinus, Publius' father, who was suffering from dyssentry. The Apostle is also recorded to have appointed him as Bishop of the place and turned his City palace at Rabat as the first Maltese Church or "domusecclesia".
