dc.description.abstractIt is not possible to trace the history of psychiatric services in Malta beyond the 16th century as no records relating to preceeding centuries have so far come to light. The earliest documents that we possess testifying to provisions for the care of the mentally ill concern the Holy Infirmary of Valletta which was built in 1575 by the Knights of the Order of st John of Jerusalem.en_GB
