Abstract: This article is an abridged version of an academic paper by Dr Xuereb appearing in The Journal of Baroque Studies (Prof. Frans Ciappara. ed.), published by the International Institute for Baroque Studies, University of Malta. It explains how art and architecture play an important role in the construction and representation of cultural identity. The Knights' period did not only inspire the Maltese elite to take baroque imagination on board but also to embrace Baroque as a perennial component of the community's identity.
