Europe History Malta History Ironfire: A Novel of the Knights of Malta and the Last Battle of the Crusades
David Ball
December 2003
From Publishers Weekly
The Ottoman Empire's vicious 1565 assault on the island fortresses of Malta, and the vigorous defense of the island by the Knights of St. John, a military religious order dedicated to preserving Christendom from the Muslims, serves as the backdrop for Ball's second historical epic (his first novel, Empires of Sand, chronicled France's efforts to expand its North African empire in the 1870s). Amid bloody land and sea battles, four protagonists struggle to survive in a world of disease, brutality and religious persecution. Nico, a young Maltese boy, is captured by Algerian corsairs in a pirate raid and taken to North Africa, where he serves as a slave to a shipbuilder. To save his life, he converts to Islam and becomes captain of one of the sultan's war galleys. Maria, Nico's sister, vows to find and rescue her... The Maltese Cross
Dennis Castillo
Jan 2006
Book Description Malta is one of the smallest nations in the world, yet has one of the longest histories of any country. The accidents of geology and geography produced an island at the center of the Mediterranean with a large harbor and ample resources for the construction of fortifications. As a result, the Maltese bore witness to many of the great conflicts in world history, from the Punic Wars, to Napoleon's conquests, to the North African and Mediterranean campaigns during World War II.

Malta History
Malta Through the Ages The Knights of Malta Palace of Grand Masters It is only befitting that I start our journey into Malta with that for which it is most renowned - The Order of St. John of Jerusalem . It was in 1113 AD following the capture of Jerusalem by the Christians that Pope Paschal II granted Brother Gerard de Saxo, founder and provost of the Hospital in Jerusalem, the Charter of incorporation of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem or more commonly referred to as the Hospitallers of Jerusalem . From this Order came a sub group of warriors called the Knights Templars. In 1291, the Knights were forced to Cyprus by their Moslem adversaries. Bound by the monastic vows of Chastity, Obedience, and Poverty, they soon found the temptations for power eroding the Order and in 1308 AD found the ideal home in the Byzantine island of Rhodes. During this period they were called Knights of Rhodes. This is the true basis behind the folklore surrounding the Maltese Falcon and the classic Humphrey Bogart film of the same name. After 400 years in the eastern Mediterranean as hospitallers initially caring for pilgrims during the Crusades, the Knights arrived in Malta in 1530 through this very harbor and became known as the

      Malta was an important cultic center for earth-mother worship in the 4th millennium B.C. Archeological work shows a developed religious center there long before those of Sumer and Egypt. Malta's written history began well before the Christian era. Originally the Phoenicians, and later the Carthaginians, established ports and trading settlements on the island. During the second Punic War (218 B.C.), Malta became part of the Roman Empire. During Roman rule, in A.D. 60, Saint Paul was shipwrecked on Malta at a place now called St. Paul's Bay.
      In 533 A.D. Malta became part of the Byzantine Empire and in 870 came under Arab control. Arab occupation and rule left a strong imprint on Maltese life, customs, and language. The Arabs were driven out in 1090 by a band of Norman adventurers under Count Roger of Normandy, who had established a kingdom in southern Italy and Sicily. Malta thus became an appendage of Sicily for 440 years. During this period, Malta was sold and resold to various feudal lords and barons and was dominated successively by the rulers of Swabia, Aquitaine, Aragon, Castile, and Spain.
      In 1522 Suleiman II drove the Knights of St. John out of Rhodes. They dispersed to their commanderies in Europe and after repeated requests for territory to Charles V, in 1530 the Knights were given sovereignty of Malta under the suzerainty of the Kings of Sicily. In 1523, a key date in Maltese history, the islands were ceded by Charles V of Spain to the Order of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem. For the next 275 years, these famous "Knights of Malta" made the island their domain. They built towns, palaces, churches, gardens, and fortifications and embellished the island with numerous works of art and enhanced cultural heritage. In 1565 Suleiman the Magnificent laid siege to Malta. After several months the strength of the Knights and the Maltese population prevailed and the Turks were defeated. Over the years, the power of the Knights declined, however, and their rule of Malta ended with their peaceful surrender to Napoleon in 1798.

    Malta History
    Malta history is a very long and interesting one. Malta has been populated with inhabitants for more then seven thousand years. The first chapter of Malta history was written in the Neolithic period. Artefacts of the first inhabitants can still be found on Malta. Prime examples of this period in Malta history are the big temples made out of stone which can be found at Hagar Qim, Gozo and a number of other locations on Malta. According to Malta history a number of these stone Maltese temples were build nearly a millennium prior to the Egyptian period and this would suggest that these stone temples in Malta are the oldest monuments which are freestanding in the world. An important chapter in Maltese history started with the arrival St Paul. The famous biblical figure St. Paul came to Malta due to his ship getting wrecked and he first set foot on Malta at the beautiful location of what it know called St. Paul's bay. St Paul spread Christianity throughout Malta which at the time has a mostly pagan population and the vast majority of Malta inhabitants have remained Christian since the days that St Paul walked the streets of Malta. Arab Invasion of Malta The Arabs also play an important part in the history of Malta . The Arabs occupied Malta around eight hundred seventy years AD and remained under Arab control for the next 220 years. The language that is spoken on Malta, Maltese, was formed during this period of Arab occupation. The Arab occupation ended when Norman Sicilians removed the Arabs from power and Christianity returned in full strength. The Norman Sicilians remained in power on Malta until the year 1530 AD.

    GHAR DALAMF, or generations a grotto not far from the small town known today as Birzebbuga, was used by shepherds as a sheepfold. Little did they think that a few feet of earth under their animals' litters hid the very ancient history of their island? And then, one d ay in 1865, Arthur Issel, an English scientist, came to the archipelago looking for fossils.
    Apart from confirming certain geological knowledge, the grotto of Ghar Dalam provided the very oldest evidence of man's presence on the island. The rock of the Maltese Islands consists of alluvial deposits from the tertiary era about fifty million years ago. As they hardened, these deposits imprisoned a vast number of shells, as can be seen from walking along the seashore, particularly below the cornice at Sliema. A million years ago, at the beginning of the ice age, gigantic erosion caused by torrential rains channelled the ground and began to form the relief. Scientists claim that at this epoch - the Pleistocene - the Maltese Islands were joined to Sicily and Africa and that the separation from Africa took place first. It is worth noting that, whereas the sea between the archipelago and the African continent s sometimes reaches depths of 400 fathoms, between and Sicily it never exceeds 70 fathoms.

    The Prehistoric Temples of Malta are probably Malta's greatest monuments. Built in monumental, megalithic blocks of stone they astound and challenge our perceptions of Prehistoric peoples. The main Deity would appear to be a goddess or 'fat lady' although distinct female features are rare and this may represent modern gender bias about large thighs and buttocks. The temples are set in a roughly D-Shaped arrangement with an external wall. The Temples, of which there are more than 20, date from approximately 3600BC-2500BC.

    The Knights of St John
    In 1530 the Holy Roman Emperor made over Malta to the Order of St John of Jerusalem. From then until 1800 they remained the rulers of the islands. After leaving their previous stronghold of Rhodes, they rejoined the fight against the power of the Turks. In 1565 Suleyman the Magnificent ordered an attack on Malta. The Great Siege cost much loss of life but the Knights survived and went on to found Valletta. From then on the islands were constantly reinforced creating in effect a large fort in the centre of the Mediterranean. Time was to prove the ultimate victor of the Knights though and they were easily swept aside by Napoleon in 1798.

    On the 15th of October 1871, the magnificent Rotunda Church was consacrated. Later, on the same day the Band of Mosta made its debut. Since then the Nicolò Isouard band kept going, passing through numerous experiences. 139 years have passed since that day and the Nicolò Isouard Band looks back at its beautiful history, seeing that it always struggled to hold up high its name and that of Mosta, to honour the Blessed Virgin, and to teach and improve in the musical art. For the years to come, the Nicolò Isouard Band will continue what was started 139 years ago and try to never lead astray from its original purposes, for which it was born.
