About the library

The Museum of the Order of St. John Library is a reference collection specialising in the history of the Knights Hospitaller, the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem and the international first aid charity St John Ambulance. The library holds significant resources on subject areas such as the crusades, the history of the military and religious orders in Europe, the geography and history of the islands of Malta, Gozo and Rhodes, and of the Priory of Clerkenwell in London. Also well represented in the collection are works on heraldry, genealogy, archaeology and numismatics, particularly related to the Order of St. John and its members.
