1878 The Turkish Wars with the Hospitalers Author: De Forest, J. W. Title: The Turkish Wars with the Hospitalers Publisher: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1878. Notes: A 11 page article on the history of the Hospitalers - a Western Christian military order - arose as a group of individuals associated with an Amalfitan hospital in the Muristan district of Jerusalem, which was dedicated to St John the Baptist and was founded around 1023 by Blessed Gerard to provide care for poor, sick or injured pilgrims to the Holy Land. After the Western Christian conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 during the First Crusade, the organization became a religious and military order under its own charter, and it was charged with the care and defense of the Holy Land. Following the conquest of the Holy Land by Islamic forces, the order operated from Rhodes, over which it was sovereign, and later from Malta where it administered a vassal state under the Spanish viceroy of Sicily. This particular article describes this history, up to the 1565 Siege of Malta (their current position). Condition: Complete article removed from within original Harper's Monthly Magazine. Original wrapers-bound removed and missing. Now enclosed in a archival crystal-clear magazine slip.
