Abstract: This paper focuses on the medieval cult of St Lawrence in the Maltese Islands and investigates the documented origins of the parish dedicated to the saint in Birgu. In particular, it considers the relationship that may have existed between this parish and the chaplaincy of the Castrum Maris. It is concluded that the two entities were quite separate and, indeed at times, at variance with each other.
