History of the Order of Malta
The history of the Maltese Relief Service is closely linked to the history of the Order of Malta.
The Sovereign Knights and Hospital Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and Malta has two roots. Founded around 1048 in Jerusalem, it is one of the oldest religious orders. At the same time, however, it has always been recognized by the international community as a separate subject of the international legal community. The order is summarized in the double term “Tuitio Fidei et Obsequium Pauperum” and means living, defending and witnessing the faith (tuitio fidei) and serving the poor and sick (obsequium pauperum).
The order comes into being around the year 1050 as a monastic foundation of some merchants from Amalfi. He was placed under the protection of St. John the Baptist with the task of running a hospital and hospice for pilgrims in the Holy Land. In 1113 he was recognized by Pope Paschal II as an ecclesiastical order. Until the abandonment of the island of Malta (1798), the members of the order were predominantly religious friars who had taken the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Most of the approximately 13,500 knights and ladies today are laymen. But even if they have not taken any religious vows, they are all committed to a Christian life and Christian charity, which means actively serving one's neighbor.
While the Malteser Hilfsdienst is rooted in the Roman Catholic Church, the Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe has the same origins with an Evangelical-Lutheran background. This is also made clear by the logo, which symbolizes the Maltese cross.
