From the Period of Muslim Occupation to the Arrival of the Order of Saint John
This chapter discusses the period during which the Maltese Islands were under the Muslim sphere of political and cultural influence, followed by the religious transformation of the Maltese population from Muslim beliefs to devout Roman Catholicism. It is noted that between 1530 and 1789, the Maltese Islands were the home of the Order of Saint John, which is a major institutional force in the military strategy to protect Christian Europe from Islamic expansion. It also highlights some problems connected to the archaeology of medieval Malta, one of which is the absence of publications.
