Description

Written and Edited by Tom Foakes, Photography by Julian Calder

Featuring over 250 images accompanied by selected essays that provide engaging and informative commentaries on the story of St John, Treasures is the first book that uses the unique collections of the Museum of the Order of St John to explore this story of faith, care, and valour, from the Order’s foundation in eleventh century Jerusalem through to its vital role today as a global humanitarian charity.

At times amusing and often profound, each object and image chosen highlights a particular aspect of the Order’s narrative, illustrating the range and diversity of the Order’s collections, the splendour of the buildings in which they are housed and, most importantly, the enduring legacy of St John throughout 900 years of caring for the sick.Published on St John’s Day, 24th June 2019, pre-order your copy now for £50 plus packing and postage. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Priory of England and the Islands in support of future investment in the Museum collections and buildings, to increase accessibility and to enable greater public engagement.

Due for publication in June 2019 by the Priory of England and the Islands of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem
