In this major contribution to the history of the crusades, O'Malley studies the establishments of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem in Britain and Ireland in the later fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. He examines their involvement in the society in those islands and the military, medical, and devotional work of the Hospital's headquarters in Rhodes, Italy, and Malta. This is the first book-length scholarly examination of the work of the order's English and Irish priories in any period.
