Chapter Summary

For two centuries the Hospitallers on Rhodes were the closest Latin neighbours of Lusignan and Venetian Cyprus. The Hospitaller archives are now in the National Library of Malta, Valletta, where they form the Archivum Ordinis Melitensis (AOM). Basically there survive three kinds of documents: (a) original documents, i.e. charters and letters which the Master and Convent on Rhodes received, issued by popes, kings, and cities; (b) registers, i.e. copies of charters and letters which the Master and Convent issued to other Hospitallers or to foreign people; and (c) minutes or other records of decisions in the Order’s council, where the Master and senior officers decided political and administrative questions. This chapter talks about the form and contents of the documents in the thirty-one volumes of the register series between 1409 and 1459.
