Speaker: Dr Tony Bethel

The speaker will trace the history of the Order of St John from the First Crusade, through the final expulsion of the Christian armies from the Holy Land to the Dissolution of the Order in England by Henry VIII and in Europe by Napoleon.  From the start of the new English Order by Queen Victoria the talk pictures the two main modern charitable aspects of the Order of St John and highlights some of the links with Derbyshire down the centuries – and the scope for much more archaeological and historical research.
