The Military Orders, Volume 3
History and Heritage
Edited by Victor Mallia-Milanes, University of Malta, Malta

The thirty papers published here record the proceedings of the Third International Conference on the Military Orders. The principal focus on this occasion was the Hospital of St John, but the Templars, Teutonic Knights and other military orders are dealt with too. Many of the papers relate to provincial life, along with contributions on historiography, the papacy, cultural history, and religious life.
