Chapter Summary

When relocating from Jerusalem to Acre (1187/91), both Hospitallers and Templars had been able to establish themselves in a pre-existing infrastructure of their own. The same was true when they moved from Acre to Cyprus. The Hospitallers were established on Cyprus by the early thirteenth century. With regard to the storage facilities of the Hospitallers' Cypriote headquarters, the statutes issued between 1291 and 1310 frequently mention the treasury but rarely the treasurer, which seems to foreshadow a post-1310 development, namely the treasurer's loss of his status as a conventual bailiff. The statutes of 1301 offer a glimpse into the Hospitaller convent's constituency during this Cypriote phase. At the end of the thirteenth century, there were considerable tensions among the Hospitallers' leadership.
