Featuring over 250 images accompanied by selected essays that provide engaging and informative commentaries on the story of St John, Treasures is the first book that uses the unique collections of the Museum of the Order of St John to explore this story of faith, care, and valour, from the Order’s foundation in eleventh century Jerusalem through to its vital role today as a global humanitarian charity.
At times amusing and often profound, each object and image chosen highlights a particular aspect of the Order’s narrative, illustrating the range and diversity of the Order’s collections, the splendour of the buildings in which they are housed and, most importantly, the enduring legacy of St John throughout 900 years of caring for the sick.
